Your Baby at 2 Months

Boys Town Pediatrics

Milestones is an exciting and important way to track the development of your baby.

Here are some things you might see your baby doing around 2 months of age. 

Your baby can:

  • Hold objects for a short period of time
  • Have an increased interest in his hands and fingers
  • Have more control with grasping, and with arm and leg movements
  • Have better head control and begin pushing up when on her stomach

At 2 months of age, your baby's language and communication skills are developing.

Your baby can:

  • Look in the direction of sounds
  • Recognize voices and respond to sounds
  • Make gurgling and cooing sounds when she's happy and content

Every child is different. Some of these behaviors and milestones generally occur at certain ages, however, a wide range of growth and behavior for each age is normal.

Remember, if you have any concerns about your child's development, check with your pediatrician.

​Every milestone is important to your child's growth and development. Boys Town Pediatrics provides general guidelines on what to expect when your child reaches 2 months of age.
