Hello Doctor. kindly tell me the treatment of moro reflex. My baby is 5.5 months old but still this reflex doesn't go away.

Hey harpreet, check thishttps://youtu.be/s_lAFst43TE It seems absence of this reflex is to be a cause of worry, the reflex can be present upto 6 months... Anyways, hope an expert gives a better answer. Don't worry dear...

yeah I have seen on youtube. nd there is mentioned to swaddle the baby.so he feels safe nd this reflex go away.

Hmm... ok.. didn't know swaddling could make that startling to go away... yes, it does give them a sense of security... but i have also read that swaddling beyond 2 months hampers physical development... My son hated being swaddled beyond 1 month...
