My 3-week-old daughter has no rooting reflex whatsoever. She is able to latch and feed, and she is gaining weight fine, so I am not worried about her eating. I am, however, worried that the lack of rooting reflex signals some larger neurological problem. I have been to 3 doctors now (including a pediatric neurologist) and no one seems to be able to give me any info. Is there a link between the missing rooting reflex and neurological issues? Has anyone seen this before? If so, were there any long-term issues with the child? Thanks.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
