Your Newborn's Reflexes

While babies may look delicate and defenseless, all healthy babies are born with extremely sophisticated reflexes that protect them from harm.

If you touch your babyís cheek lightly with your finger your baby will move its head toward the touch, open its mouth and attempt to suck n hopes of getting milk. When your baby is startled by a loud noise, it will respond by flinging its arms out in the hopes of grabbing onto something and preventing a fall.

When your baby feels a prick of pain, it will withdraw the hurt limb and extend another one in an effort to push away whatever is causing the pain. Also all babies under six months are excellent swimmers due to their diving reflexes. Babies can block their throat so they don't swallow water. This is why youíll see babies swimming with their mouths open.

These fantastic reflexes are just the start of all the amazing developments your baby will go through in its first year.
