Eye Contact?

My daughter is 11 weeks old. She coos and smiles and seems active and happy. I have a a hard time getting her to make eye contact with me. Whenever I am feeding her she looks directly at me, but a lot of the time when I have her on my lap she looks the other way from me. Is this normal? My Mother-in-law seems to think it isn't, so now I am VERY worried.

I am not sure if it is normal. Have you looked at babycenter.com? They have a lot of good info on development. Otherwise if you are really concerned it would be a good idea to bring it up at her next well visit. What is your MIL concerned about? What does she think it means?
