Burping A Baby 1.Sit upright and hold your baby against your chest. Your baby's chin should rest on your shoulder as you support the baby with one hand. With the other hand, gently pat your baby's back. Sitting in a rocking chair and gently rocking with your baby while you do this may also help. 2.Hold your baby sitting up, in your lap or across your knee. Support your baby's chest and head with one hand by cradling your baby's chin in the palm of your hand and resting the heel of your hand on your baby's chest (but be careful to grip your baby's chin, not throat). Use the other hand to pat your baby's back gently. 3.Lay your baby on your lap on his or her belly. Support your baby's head and make sure it's higher than his or her chest. Gently pat your baby's back.

Palmar Grasp A flexion of the fingers caused by stimulation of the palm of the hand Appears at birth and disappears around 5 to 6 months of age.
Moro startle reflex: a normal reflex of young infants; a sudden loud noise causes the child to stretch out the arms and flex the legs.
Babinski Reflex An extension of the great toe, sometimes with fanning of the other toes, in response to stroking of the sole of the foot. It is a normal reflex in infants, but it is usually associated with a disturbance of the pyramidal tract in children and adults. Babinski reflex is one that goes away and is replaced by the plantar reflex.(As the nervous system becomes more complex, a number of those reflexes go away and others are retained)
Stepping Reflex movements of progression elicited when the infant is held upright and inclined forward with the soles of the feet touching a flat surface. Should be gone within 3 to 4 months of age.
