15Baby Is Born With Over 70 Automatic Reflexes

Daily Mail

Although many of these reflexes will diminish (or totally disappear) within a few months, you will come to recognize certain automatic baby behaviours.

When baby first arrives in the world, he is already well equipped for life on the outside of the womb. Experts estimate that a baby has over 70 innate reflexes at work in their first month of life.

For instance, when you put your finger out, your baby will have the

natural instinct to grab ahold of it with her hand. Even while asleep, this reflex can be activated. The rooting and sucking reflexes are vital, as they facilitate baby finding his mother's breast and feeding. Interestingly enough, even the reflexes that fade in infancy are sometimes reactivated in adults who suffer from brain trauma.
