Describehow reflexes help newborns interact with the world.Reflexes:the newborn is born with unlearned responses triggered by specific stimuli,triggered by sound.
Certainreflexes have survival value rooting,sucking, swallowing, eye blinks. Other reflexes aredevelopmental precursors to later voluntary motor behaviorsstepping a precursor to walking.Reflexes reflect the health of thechild’s nervous system, medical “Reflexes” helps identify normal brain and nerve activityin infants. Some reflexes occur only in specific periods of development orstages of infancy to 1 year.Identifyhow professionals determine whether a baby is healthy and adjusted outside ofthe womb.During an antenatal appointment with your physician,he or she will continually assess the position of your baby in the womb, checkthe heart beats, the position, the measurement especially during the lastmonth. It is very important to give your attention during your scan day tolisten to when you will be told about the situation of the baby to be like anterior,posterior, transverse, or breech to describe the position of your baby.

Describeinfants’ sensory abilities:Touch seems to be the first sense to develop andmature. Newborns are sensitive to pain. Hearing, Smell, taste, also begins todevelop in the womb. Vision is the least well-developed sense at birth.Peripheral vision, color perception, acuteness of focus, binocular vision, andthe ability to follow a moving object with the eyes all develop within thefirst few monthsFor example, some kids may have a challenging timetaking in the background noise. It might be difficult for them to concentrate.
My son covers his ears when noise is too much,even when my little baby cries and he’s sleeping, the moment the little babycries so loud, my son will cover his ears because her voice is very noisy forhim to take and it usually limit his ability to sleep. Everyone has some littlesensory issues here and there. Kail, R.V.
