It is challenging to raise a child. Childcare comes with a lot of responsibility and sleepless nights. If you are a new mom, I am sure you must be excited to witness the development of your bundle of joy, your younger one and must be anticipating the developments that may come in the future months. When your younger one turns 2 months old, they can experience physical developments such as sucking fingers, smiling at people, holding head up and making arm and legs movements.

0-2 Months Baby's Vision, Sleep Communication Milestones

Following are the newborn baby developments milestones which you will witness or check in your two months old baby:

1. Sleep Milestones/Patterns:

Generally, they tend to sleep for 15-16 hours a day, the babies wake up every three hours. It is common for the baby to be awake in the middle of the night.

2. Hearing Milestones:

The hearing ability of your infant is enhanced and they are mesmerized by listening to the voices. By this stage, they become good listeners, turn their heads towards the sound and are able to figure out the differences between voices. Talking to your little one often can make them familiar with your voice.

3. Communication Milestones:

A two-month-old baby cannot respond to you verbally when you communicate, however they respond to you when you are talking to them. Gurgles, sweet sound of coos and crying is their method of communication.

4. Vision Milestones:

They attain clarity in differentiating between colors and are attracted by bright colors. When it comes to vision, they have the potential to see objects until 18 inches away, which means you need to be pretty close to be noticeable. [Also Know - 3-6 Months Baby's Vision, Hearing & Sleep Milestones]
