Hi there,

We started giving our son (23 months old) the recommended RDA of vit. A in the form of cod liver oil about 3 weeks ago. About 2 weeks ago, we started noticing that when our son tries to look at us (and focus?), he inevitably ends up rubbing his eyes, holding his hands over his eyes, and squinting his eyes very tightly. Sometimes he'll even end up crying a bit after trying to look at us. All of his attempts to look at us are unprompted (haven't started therapy of any kind yet -- he was diagnosed just 2 months ago) and it seems that he wants to look at us, but it also seems painful for him to do so. Has anyone else experienced anything along these lines with their kids?

I will run this by our doc, but I figured the parental wealth of knowledge here might give us some insight based on experience. Any help, ideas, suggestions much appreciated!

Thanks,
Amy
