Your 2 months old baby

1 month

Babies use many of their senses to get to know their mothers while they are still in the womb. As your baby takes in everything in the "outside" world, she uses that information to communicate with you.

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, she will likely be able to do the following: 

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

Right now, it’s all about the body language.

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

She is seeking ways to adapt to the world. For example, sleeping is one way she learns to organize her life: When she’s tired, she "turns off" the environment, conserving energy to grow.

She is giving you permission and feedback.Watch her closely and you will learn how much or how little stimulation she can handle, and when she is ready for talking, feeding, singing, or playing. Her actions will say it all.
