Moro reflex, i cant make out whats after the hyphen, could i get a clearer picture?

Harpreet Kaur

yes. it is Moro reflex. but what is this?

Harpreet Kaur

yes. it is Moro reflex. what is this? after hyphen is 'spread'

Sheeba Vijesh

googled it, baby feels loss of support.. i think it means sometimes we feel like we are falling in our dream, similarly all babies feel like that at some time... i have seen my baby startle in sleep... maybe that's it... don't really know much...

Harpreet Kaur

actually when doctor falling him then my baby spread his arms. . I checked in google.
but didn't get it properly

Sheeba Vijesh

ya... thats wht i saw in google... babies spread out their arm... anyways thats normal reflex for babies

Dr. Payal M

there are certain reflexes babies are born with, one of which is the moros reflex or the startle reflex. it usually goes away in a few months time as the neurological system matures. i think its written as moros reflex -present
