Very active 2 1/2 month old

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

My little girl is 2 1/2 months old. She gets into moods where she just wants to be put down to kick and play. My husband is worried that there's something wrong...I know this sounds crazy. He's wondering if it's normal for a baby her age to move like that. I feel like the moves are deliberate. She always looks happy like she is playing when she does them. She kicks her legs and moves her arms around very quickly. She has calm times too where she wants to cuddle. Does anyone else have a baby this active?

Very healthy and a very good sign that she is feeling loved and confident to be independent from you. Good job!

Perfect and normal .... she is learning to use her limbs, swing her arms without hitting herself in the face, control her legs so she will later be able to walk .... babies often like things they can push on with their feet or kick and hit with their hands if it is hung over head. Maybe she will be an Olympian one day

My daughter was like this when she was 2 1/2 months old. She ended up doing everything early like rolling over, crawling, and walking.
