OPENING BABY’S MOUTH

Partager

To get an infant to open his mouth on his own, stroke the lips or cheek lightly. The infant turns instinctively toward the stimulus and opens his mouth wide and searches. You can then introduce the bottle nipple or breast. The reflex, called the rooting reflex, helps infants find a source of food, typically the breast. The reflex disappears within a few months as babies gain voluntary control.
