Swallowing and
Sucking Reflex

When anything is put in the mouth, babies suck and


swallow. Some babies while still in the womb make their
fingers sore by sucking them.

The rooting reflex

If one side of the babys cheek or mouth is gently


touched, the baby turns toward the touch and the mouth
prepares to suck.
When a finger or an object touches the palm of the
baby's hand, the hand automatically grasps it.

The grasp reflex

The Stepping or
Walking reflex

When held upright with their feet placed on a firm


surface, babies will make forward stepping movement.

The startle reflex

When babies are startled by a sudden loud noise or


bright light, they will move their arms outwards with
elbows bent and hands clenched

The falling reflex


(Moro Reflex)

Any sudden feeling that gives the baby the feeling that
they are being dropped will make them fling their arms
out, open their hands and bring their arms back over the
chest as if to catch hold of something.
