Rooting Reflex

Rooting Reflex

Reflexes have reasons for occurring…typically. The rooting reflex occurs in infants (we outgrow it) and is a tendency for the infant, when stroked on the side of the face, to move its face in the direction being stroked, open its mouth, and search for a nipple. This reflex is for survival as it helps infants locate food.
