The Rooting Reflex


 

3 months

Buy NowFrom The Biology of Prenatal Development.

Script: In contrast to the withdrawal response seen earlier, stimulation near the mouth now evokes a turning toward the stimulus and an opening of the mouth. This response is called the "rooting reflex" and it persists after birth, helping the newborn find his or her mother's nipple during breastfeeding.

All ages referenced to fertilization, not last menstrual period. One month = 4 weeks.
