Incomplete question: To get the best out of your questions you need to provide enough basic information for us to work with.Since the moro reflex disappears in most infants by 4 mo awake and 5 asleep (and sooner in some) how old your baby is now matters with what we might answer.Who and why they labeled your baby as an ERB's is also not clear.
