Is it normal that sometimes my baby slept with her eyes crossed?

In brief: Yes

You need to continue to monitor the eyes while awake as long as they stay straight it is probably ok .
Ask your pediatrician to check your baby on your next visit. If you have any doubts get the baby examined by an ophthalmologist as a crossed eye in an infant can become a "lazy eye" and not develop connections to the brain correctly leaving the vision pemenantly decreased.

In brief: Crossed eye

Crossed eyes are not normal but can be present in the first few days of a young baby's life.
If the eyes remain crossed when she is awake, see your pediatric eyemd for an evaluation.

It can be normal depending on the age of the baby. If concerned see your pediatrician .
