Baby Care in  Second Month

During the second month she/she is developing a daily routine of sleeping and eating.

Feedings advise

During the second month feeds your baby every 2-3 hours.

Sleeping habits in baby

At about 6 weeks old, his sleep and wake pattern will begin to become established. During this period baby may sleep 5-7 hours per night in the second month. He/she may sleep 3-4 hours between nighttime feedings. Now she/he has definite waking hours during the day. She sleeps straight. By the time your baby is 6 to 12 weeks old, she’ll probably be sleeping for longer time in the night.

Physical Changes in second month

Your baby can follow an object with his eyes as it’s passed over her face. Babies enjoy smiling faces and sometimes smile in return. Now she has a range of facial expressions.

Babies behave differently with the different people. In this stage your baby is attaching and bonding with you and your family members.     

When she/he is happy and ready to play then shows signals like open eyes, relaxed arms and legs, and maybe even a tight, playful grip around your finger, turn and look away.

At this stage compared to the rest of the body, their stomach looks rounded.

Movements in second month

Babies have more control over their movements now.  They start to lift their heads briefly when lying on their stomach and have some control over the neck muscles. They reach for things with their hands and kicks arms and legs up in the air.
