Your 2 month old baby's motor skills

2 months

Right now, it’s all about body language!

Your baby cannot speak yet, but their body is speaking to you loud and clear if you know what to look for.

They are seeking ways to adapt to the world. For example, sleeping is one way they learn to organize their life: When they're tired, they "turn off" the environment, conserving energy to grow.

They are giving you permission and feedback.Watch them closely and you will learn how much or how little stimulation they can handle, and when they are ready for talking, feeding, singing, or playing. Their actions will say it all.

All babies develop at different rates. You should not be concerned if your baby does something later or earlier than your friend's children. In general, by the end of your baby's second month, they will likely be able to do the following: 

  • Smile when you touch or talk to them
  • React to loud sounds by startling, crying, or getting very quiet
  • No longer keep their hands in tight fists
  • Begin recognizing you and your partner as the parents
  • Be able to lift their chest off the floor using her forearms for support

Make adorable photos with the baby, upload to the App. Write about his/her motor skills.
