  • Take your child back to your eye doctor as soon as possible for further testing. It could be a sign of something more serious.

  • I believe that feeding your baby anything with Vitamin A that is easy to swallow and easy for the baby to digest is something that can boost his eyesight. However, too much of Vitamin is dangerous. Here's a list of food that contains Vitamin A: liver (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, fish) (6500 μg 722%)carrots (835 μg 93%)Broccoli leaves (800 μg 89%) - Acc. to USDA database. Broccoli florets supposedly have much less - see note.sweet potatoes (709 μg 79%)kale (681 μg 76%)butter (684 μg 76%)spinach (469 μg 52%)leafy vegetablespumpkin (369 μg 41%)collard greens (333 μg 37%)cantaloupe melon (169 μg 19%)eggs (140 μg 16%)apricots (96 μg 11%)papaya (55 μg 6%)mango (38 μg 4%)peas (38 μg 4%)broccoli (31 μg 3%)winter squashThese foods all contain a sufficient amount of Vitamin A, so I suggest you search for such in the Gerber Baby Isle in your local Food Store. Feed your child the Gerber supply of any of the above, only once a day, for that's all he really needs. I also recommend you take your child to a doctor and ask the doctor about your babies needs, and diets so you are aware.
