Wow two mos old is way too young to veg out in front of the TV. My 21 mo only vegges out once a week for a half hour, and she's lucky if she gets that.
My LO loved to step outside. I would wrap her in a blanket and we would go out for 5 mins (it was Nov in New England). Walks are always great, and DD loved being in her Moby wrap. Small Rattles are good right now, singing, dancing, cooing back at baby. Around 3 mos I put a square of wall paper on the wall: it was a black backround, with white circles that had coloured outlines around them. DD LOVED that wall paper. It became her first friend lol she would stare at it and talk to it, cooing and squeaking. Black, white, and red colours will grab the baby's attention. HTH!
