2-Month-Old Baby (11 Weeks)

Tummy Time

Tummy time is very important to do at least a few times a day. Too little time upright (cuddle time), or too much time on the back while awake, or in car seats, carriers, and bouncy seats, can cause flat head syndrome, which is known medically as positional plagiocephaly.
 
Besides causing a flattened or misshapen head, positional plagiocephaly can also potentially delay the development of the motor skills and strength needed to complete many early tasks (such as moving the head, sitting up, rolling over, and pushing up).
 
As a result, today's healthcare providers now recommend that babies spend time on their tummies every day. Playing and exercising on the tummy not only helps to build head, neck, and back muscles, but also helps to develop those important motor skills.
 

Constipation Nation

It's bound to happen at some point -- constipation can strike even the smallest of bottoms. It can creep up on you and you might not even notice for a day or so, especially if diaper duty is a shared task in your household. If your baby has a sudden decrease in dirty diapers (less than what is usual), you might have a constipation situation on your hands.
 
Generally speaking, if your infant goes more than three days without pooping, he is probably dealing with a touch of constipation. There are several reasons that a baby might become constipated, and just as many things you can do to try to ease their discomfort.
