Caption: Baby reflex testing. Newborn baby with its arms thrown up as a paediatrician tests its Moro response. This grip reflex may be caused by rough or unexpected handling, or by removing a supporting hand before the baby can feel something solid below. The baby moves its arms outwards and then brings them together in an attempt to grip on. The baby also extends its legs and cries out. This reflex is one of the signs of a healthy baby, but disappears two to three months after birth. The baby is two to three days old.
