Customer Question

My 5 month old baby has one pupil larger than the other...We noticed at birth...she also had a traumatic birth and didn't breathe for 8 minutes...I have 3 children and from experience developmentally she seems normal and breastfeeds well...is this something to worry about? The eye with the larger pupil also wanders a little and the normal eye does not...she was an emergency section due to placental abruption after 36 hours of labour...They say she was far down the birth canal and they had to pull her out if that's relevant?
