Distributed by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Education, and Health and Human Services, this pamphlet provides parents with information and advice about their infants in the second month of life. The pamphlet outlines typical infant behavior at two months of age, the need for regular visits to a physician, health insurance, sleeping patterns, bowel habits, infant feeding, responding to infant distress, infant and crib safety, and dental health. Information on child development and "baby games" to communicate with the 2-month-old is also provided. The pamphlet then identifies special needs of single parents and single teenage parents, and lists resources for families. (KB)
