16 month old constantly squinting! Lock Rss

Hi all
I have a 16 month old daughter she is just beautiful and such a cheeky little thing already.
The last few months I have noticed she squints a lot and the last few days she's been doing it more than usual and it's like she is having a mini blackout. I don't know if she thinks it's a game and does it on purpose or something could be wrong!
Had anyone experienced this with their little one?

Thank you ????????

Personally I don't think people can tell you the answer here. I think it could be either. Toddlers can just have weird little habits or there could be a medical reason it's happening.

If I were you I'd try and catch her doing it on video over the next couple of days and see your GP this week to see what they think

Hope that helps.
The medical name for squint is strabismus. It's better for you to consult with an ENT Specialist or Eye specialist nearby you..

Thank you so much!!
I'll have to do some research on it.
Went to the paediatrician yesterday and he suggested I catch her doing it on video but it's almost impossible.
I have a follow up in two months so fingers crossed.
