(2 Months) Your amazing baby: cooing, smiling and more

  • Posted

By the end of two months, your baby will reach these important developmental milestones:

  • Begin to smile at people, tries to look at you and pays attention to faces
  • Bring hands to mouth and suck
  • Coos and gurgles
  • Turns his head towards sounds
  • Begins to track things with his eyes and recognizes people at a distance
  • Get bored (fussy, crying) if activity doesn't change
  • Holds head up and pushes up when lying on tummy

Call your doctor if your baby:

  • Doesn't respond to loud sounds
  • Doesn't watch things as they move
  • Doesn't smile
  • Can't hold his head up or push up when on his tummy

If you don't have a doctor or would like a free developmental screening, call Home Safe at (561) 383-9822 or 2-1-1 and ask for Help Me Grow.
