Breastfeeding – What to expect at 2 months

  • Nursing patterns vary from baby to baby and your baby will fall into a nursing patterncanstockphoto7077082_sm best suited for him.
  • Continue to watch your baby, not the clock. The length of feeding will vary from baby to baby and time of day.
  • Your baby may cluster feed, usually in the early evening.

  • Bowel movements may become less frequent.
  • Baby is paying more attention to faces and may look at you while nursing.
  • Continue Vitamin D supplements if advised by the baby’s physician.
