Two-month-old babies are gaining more control over their bodies. That means they can hold their head a little steadier while lying on their tummies or being supported upright. In the second month. By 2 months old, your baby should have gone through a growth spurt, but it can be hard to evaluate on your own.

Your baby’s growth chart at the doctor’s office can help you know if your baby is on track for physical development. If your baby is showing no signs of facial recognition. Follow the links below to read development information tailored to the specific week of your baby’s life.

The average weight of a 2-month-old baby girl is 11.3 pounds; the average boy at 2 months weighs in at 12.3 pounds. Height averages are 22.5 inches for girls and 23 inches for boys. All that growth is fueled by the all-liquid diet your cutie is still on – whether that’s formula or breast milk (or a combo of both). Corrected age, which is calculated from your baby’s due date. You should measure your premature baby’s development against his corrected age, not his actual date of birth.

Your doctor will assess your premature baby’s development from the time he should have been born, and evaluate his skills accordingly (Hall and Elliman 2006). Your 2-Month-Old Baby’s Development & Growth Milestones How much should a 2-month-old weigh? Your 2-month-old baby’s weight keeps on inching up, probably by around 5 to 7 ounces per week. At this stage, there typically isn’t much difference in weight gain pace between breastfed and formula-fed babies — that comes a little later. At this point, your baby will begin to move beyond his early preferences for bright or two-toned objects toward more detailed and complicated designs, colors, and shapes.

Show your baby – and let him touch – a wider variety of objects. Good choices include plastic cookie cutters, soft balls, and stuffed animals. Hear ye, hear ye. Baby Development Learn everything you need to know about your 2 month old baby.

Track important developments and milestones such as talking, walking, growth, memory & more. How your child plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves offers important clues about your child’s development. Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. Check the milestones your child has reached by the end of 2 months by completing a checklist with CDC’s free Milestone Tracker mobile app, for iOS. Your healthcare provider will monitor your baby’s growth rate at each checkup, noting your 2-month-old baby’s weight, length, and head circumference to make sure he’s on track and doing well.
