How to stimulate a 2-month-old baby

2-month-old babies do not have their senses as developed as an adult, with large differences in the capacity of each sense among themselves. Stimulating the baby at 2 months requires first of all patience. We will not receive a clear answer to know if it is working, having to use our intuition while we look at small details that will let us know that something is really taking effect.

Pay attention to the following tips to stimulate your baby :)

He caresses his body

One of the simplest methods and that we perform unconsciously. Stimulating your body with our hands will help you to know the physical limits with respect to the world around you. It is better to be delicate caresses, alternating between small pressure points to draw your attention to sustained caresses traveling part of your body. We can use it to check reflections that you have from birth, pressing in areas such as the palm of your hand or on your cheeks with your finger flexed.

Keep a constant communication

Babies learn language by mere observation, capturing the nuances of each language while trying to reproduce it by their means. The ideal is to interact with him while we talk to other people being present. Make him participate indirectly while understanding how we communicate with other adults, understanding the basic rules of both verbal language and that which is reduced to non-verbal communication. From 2 months will make sounds trying to communicate with us, moments that we can take to establish eye contact and understand what it means.

Play with your eyes

The view is one of the senses that takes longer to fully develop. At 2 months the child does not have a vision beyond short distances, having to look at constant patterns to establish a complete picture. Keeping your eyes a few inches from your face and playing with swinging objects will help stimulate the sense of sight. When we use toys it is important that they have a very defined appearance or with one or two striking colors above the rest, the child still can not discern complex figures so we would lose their attention.

Play different textures

One of the most developed senses with this age is that of touch, wanting to apply pressure on all objects while moving them with their hands. It allows you to play with different materials, exploring your limits with your hands. A plastic spoon, a teddy bear, a pen with the cap attached ... anything manageable and that we can recover quickly will be adequate. Of course, we must watch when handling any object since babies at this age tend to take things to their mouths.

Play practices on the ground

With two months the baby's motor skills are very limited, practically reducing the limbs by focusing on the fingers. We can place him on the floor surrounded by toys to try to reach them. It will not move but it will attract your visual attention, swinging from one to the other while stretching your arms trying to catch them. They have to be objects of a single piece and very visually striking, being able to play to turn it around, move it a little from the air and approach it or move it away while we swing it.

Did you know...

If you have a garden, leave your baby in the grass and observe it. By far is one of the most stimulating sites for babies of any age, attentive to everything that nature offers them, including the touch of grass, earth, the sound of insects, birds ..
