T F

When anything is put in the mouth , babies at once suck and


swallow . Some babies while still in the womb make their fingers by
sucking them .
If one side of the babys cheek or mouth is gently touched, the baby
turns toward the touch and the mouth prepares to suck.
When an object or a finger touches the palm of the babys
hand , the hand automatically grapes it .

When held upright with their feet placed on a firm surface, babies will
make forward stepping movement.
When babies are startled by a sudden loud noise or bright light , they will
move their arms outwards with elbows bent and hands clenched .

Any sudden feeling that gives the baby the feeling that they are being
dropped will make them fling their arms out, open their hands and
bring their arms back over the chest as if to catch hold of something.
