NAN: Physical Milestones at Two Months

At two months, an infant is expected to lift his head and begin to push up when lying on his stomach.

During this time, an infant also begins to follow things with his eyes and can move his arms and legs more smoothly. This includes having the ability to bring his hands to his mouth.  During this period, hand and eye coordination is also developing and an infant can focus his eyes on the faces of people near him. 

If at two months an infant is not bringing his hands to his mouth or is unable to hold his head up when pushing up when on his stomach, nannies should mention these things to the parents and suggest they share this information with the child’s pediatrician.
