Your Baby at 2 Months
Updated: Jan 19
How your baby plays, speaks, learns, and acts is important! Paying attention to these things helps us get a better understanding of his or her development. Although unmet milestones does not always mean trouble, understanding these typical developmental milestones will help you determine the need to speak with a pediatrician.
So, what can your baby do by 2 months old?
Smiles at people
Can briefly calm himself
Tries to look at parent
Coos, makes gurgling sounds
Turns head toward sounds
Pays attention to faces
Begins to follow things with eyes
Begins to act bored (cries, fussy) if activity doesn’t change
Can hold head up and begins to push up when lying on tummy
Makes smoother movements with arms and legs
How can I help develop my 2 month old?
Help your baby get into a routine of daily activities
Act excited and smile when your baby makes sounds
Talk to your baby during feeding, dressing, and bathing
Read and sing to your baby
