You and your baby: 2 months, 2nd week

How your baby is developing

If your baby falls asleep at night (five or six hours at a time), you're one of the lucky few. Most babies still wake up frequently at 10 weeks of age. You may notice that your baby is now more active during the day - some babies are now up to 10 hours awake every day. An interesting fact: whether your baby is a night owl or an early bird, whether it likes to sleep a lot or a little, this trait will keep it for the rest of its childhood.

Two awesome game ideas that could make your baby fun this week and encourage its development!

Your life: love and partnership

Few parents feel hot desire and passion for their partner in the weeks after birth - for very understandable and practical reasons. Even if you do not have the time or the desire for sex, you should find ways in which you and your partner can assure your mutual love.

Talk to each other. Keep communication going no matter how stressful you are. Remember that both of you are going through a big change in your life. When you talk about it, you feel more connected.

Laugh together. Their lives are jumbled and even if you are so tired that you sometimes feel like a zombie, it is easier to laugh than to cry. Laugh together about your quirks.

Create vanishing points. Go to the movies together while a friend or relative is taking care of the baby. Just a few hours outside the home so you can recharge your batteries.

Love by touch. It does not always have to be sexual intercourse. Kissing, cuddling and hugging do not require much energy and can help you to relax.

Take your time. Remember that these turbulent weeks will eventually come to an end.
