Caption: Rooting reflex in a breastfeeding baby. Image 2 of 2. The rooting reflex is an action in which any touch on the side of a baby's face compels it to move its mouth towards the touch. This allows the baby to locate a nipple for feeding purposes, although the touching object does not have to be a nipple to activate the reflex. See image M831/270 for this baby being touched on the cheek by the nipple.
