Not at this time: Primitive reflexes tend to persist through age 3 months. Review this concern with your pediatrician in your baby's up coming visit.

Clinch response: Normal for now but aggravating at times.They grab your hair if you hold them too close. It relaxes with time to allow them to have a purposeful grab and release at 4-5 mo.Same thing curls their toes down till past a year.
