  • 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.
