2 Months Old Baby
Your baby knows who you are
Your baby is by now very comforted by your embrace and may well cry when picked up by someone unfamiliar. They’ll move their arms when they’re stimulated or excited, and can comfort themselves by sucking their fingers or thumb.
Caring for your baby
Colic tends to be one of these problems that crops up quite a lot of the time – occurring in 1 in 4 young babies. It is comforting to know that colicky babies do not have any lasting problems once the colic stops, but it can be very hard to listen to the long periods of crying every day.
Your baby’s learning to lift their head
Your 2 months old baby’s body is continuing to straighten out. Soon they’ll be able to lift their head and hold it for a few moments while they’re lying flat on their tummy.
Although your 2 months old baby won’t be able to talk using words for about a year, they’re already learning how to communicate. Your voice is probably their favourite sound. When your baby hears it they’ll instinctively respond by making a sound in reply.
Discovering their hands
As their instinctive grasp reflex lessens, your baby will become fascinated with their newly discovered hands, and will use them (as well as their mouth) to explore new and different objects.
