I'VE GOT A NEW BORN BAY BOY WHO IS 8 DAYS OLD.
MY BABY HAS NOT OPENED HIS EYES YET, IT SEEMS AS IF THEY ARE STILL SENSITIVE TO LIGHT.

Tman, he should open his eyes if you move him or make sudden noises, but he doesn’t have to keep his eyes open all the time. If you’re worried, the best would be to let your doctor take a look. Good luck.
