Baby eyesight develops in stages. In the beginning, everything is very blurry. Lights are often a fixed point that they can see the most clearly and everything surrounding the light is most likely more clear to them.

At month 3, sensitivity to light becomes increased. Perhaps your baby hasn't quite got sensitive to it yet or they have and they are fascinated by it.
