Far and away the most common causes is the infant's sclera (white part of eye) is thinner and more translucent than adults and the blue layer underneith (Choroid) shows through giving it that bluish color.

Discuss with your peditrician and he/she can tellyou if you need a formal eye consultation with a pediatric ophthalmologist.
