The “walking baby” video (link below) has gone viral. It is so filled with the ignorance around early reflexes and attachment! I am sad and angered by this ignorance.
Described as a miracle, this is a normal post birth response that helps a baby find the breast.
That infant should be on mom’s belly, being allowed to crawl up and root, not held away from mother by a nurse.
You can see her determination to get there! But the nurse is completely interferng with this natural process because she doesn’t understand it.
