The grasp reflex

If you put your finger into #baby ’s palm, your baby makes a fist and tries to grab it. 

The grasp reflex begins at birth and lasts until about 3 to 6 months old. It probably teaches #baby to pick up food and grasp objects.

What are reflexes?
Newborn reflexes are reactions that babies are born with. These reflexes indicate that #baby ’s senses and brain are working properly. All reflexes occur at a specific age and will disappear naturally as the baby grows.
