I take care of 2 months old baby while his parents working. And when he dont sleep and he getting bored i start to think how to play with 2 months old baby. Sometimes i making funny faces, tickle baby, exercise baby, and talk with him, but sometimes i dont know how to play with him, because he is still so little, if he will be older then will be easier to play, but now, sometimes i get confused. How do you play with 2 months old baby? Do you have any advice how to make fun in playing time? :)

That was a fun work, I love kids and I will love that too!!! But be careful in handling the baby. Maybe he will love music, play some music to calm him. Or just let him see cute and colorful toys.

Usually 2 months old babies can't be played too much. But talking or showing things is fun. Babies like watching moving things,so maybe you can watch movies with him.

Most babies enjoy looking at colorful stuffs especially that this gives stimulus to their eyes and brain. So my advice for you is to let the baby see some colorful pictures or items (of course I am referring to items that are safe for babies) and have him or her play with it. Moreover, stimulating a baby's brain would help increase his or her intelligence as he or she grows older. It will be a good idea to start to stimulate his or her mind while he or she is still young.

hmm, yes, i already put in front of him colorful toys so he can look at it and see color differences. So it means later his brain will work well :)

I suggest a soft book with black and white pictures to interest the baby. You could wave a colorful and soft rattle. You could tell him a story with a teddy. Teddy can do different actions like go up, go down, jump, sleep and so on. You could talk to the baby or sing gently to him. I don't suggest tickling him. My daughter liked laying on her play mat. It had rattles and soft toys waving from it. Good luck.

Talking and making faces are usually what I did when my kid was that age. But I never tickle him. I had been told by my parents not to do it. They say it might give the baby gas in his stomach or something. You could also use colorful toys, but I think at two months, they cannot discern different colors yet. My advice is for you to make sure that you really are feeling happy when you play with the child. They can sense if you're not and that might make them upset :)
