at 13 months the child should be looking at you , objects etc steadily with bilateral straight eyes .. what u have said is NOT normal for her age.. only until 3 months children can have misaligned eyes .. after that squinting warrants check up and further treatment if necessary . .

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Many babies appear to have squint , but in real they don’t .This can be best judged by examination by your Pediatrician or Optholomologist. White part (sclera) of eye is light blue colour in some kids which is normal.However there are some disorders associated with this feature.
I advise you to visit your Pediatrician and get examined thoroughly and get free from worries.
Take care
