150-3 Months: Baby Can Hold His Head Up

By 2 months old many babies can hold their head up unsupported. The neck and core muscles are developing and your baby may keep his head up for anywhere from a few seconds to minutes. This basic motor skill is the foundation for many to come and will help your

child interact with the world and work towards other skills such as rolling and crawling.

How you can help: You can encourage your child to hold their head by holding your baby close to your face and interacting with them regularly. By creating sounds and facial expressions to catch your child's attention, they will want to lift their head to see what you are doing! Remember, his eyesight isn’t great at this point so keep them close for the greatest benefit.
