Developmental milestones are what most children can do by a certain age.

Check the milestones your child has reached by the end of 2 months. Take this with you and talk with your child’s doctor at every visit about the milestones your child has reached and what to expect next.

What most babies can do at two months:

Social and Emotional = Starts to smile at people, can calm themselves (for example can bring hands to their mouth and suck on hand), tries to look at parent.

Language/Communication = Coos, makes gurgling sounds, turns head toward sounds and noises

Cognitive (learning, thinking, problem-solving) = tries focusing attention on faces, follows things with eyes and recognize people at a distance, begins to act bored (cries, fussy) if activities aren’t changed

Movement/Physical Development = can hold head up and begins to push up when lying on tummy, more controlled movements with arms and legs 

Act early by talking to your child’s doctor if your child:
Isn’t responding to loud sounds
Isn’t watching/tracking things as they move
Isn’t smiling at people
Isn’t bringing their hands to their mouth
Can’t hold their head up or pushing up when on tummy

If You’re Concerned – Act Early
Tell your child’s doctor or nurse if you notice any of these signs of possible developmental delay.
