According to specialists, at birth and for a few months, babies usually only have reflexes or a reaction to some external stimulus. Reflexes depend on the baby’s ability to adapt and have greater control over his body and the environment.
To understand it a little more, There are two reflections that could be an explanatory part of this moment, one called Search reflex, which occurs when the corner of the baby’s lips is touched or caressed. The baby turns his head and opens his mouth to follow and “seek” in the direction of the caress. This helps the baby find the breast or bottle to feed on. This reflex lasts about four months.
The other is the sucking reflex. Searching helps prepare the baby for suckling, When the roof of the baby’s mouth comes into contact, the baby begins to suckle, which could be mistaken for a kiss.
