Find out from your aunt (or the parents) what type of sleep/feeding schedule the baby is on that way it is easier to predict what is wrong when the time comes. Also find out how the baby likes to be soothed, with what works and what doesn't. 2 month old are easy to entertain so usually if they are awake, dry, and happy, just talking with them or giving them something to hold onto (if they can) makes them happy. Find out what things he/she likes more then others. As long as you are provided with accurate information, it wont be that bad =0)
