Baby Movements

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 01-11-2007

At two months of age, your baby has more control of her body. When she was younger, she may have looked uncoordinated when she waved her arms and legs. Now she can move her arms and legs more smoothly.

She can’t reach yet, but if you touch her hand with a toy, her hand will move toward the toy.

Her hands are above her head when she plays. She can twist her body and head from side to side. She can put her hand in her mouth for sucking.

Some babies may make crawling movements with their knees when lying on their tummies.

You will see changes in how your baby uses her eyes, ears and hands. Here are things to look for in your two-month-old:

  • She watches her hands more.
  • She can watch an object several feet away. She especially likes to watch moving objects or people.
  • She reacts to sounds by looking toward the sound.
  • When she hears a sound, she may stop moving until she decides where it is from.
  • Since her hands are open more often, she can touch more objects. She is learning the difference between hard and soft. She likes it when something soft is placed in her fingers.
