My daughter was born at 31.6. She is now 9 weeks old - 12 days adjusted. I'm wondering about anyone else's experience with the Moro reflex - or the startle reflex. She has, what I think, a big time startle reflex. She startles herself awake as she is falling asleep - arms go flying out for no apparent reason as she is just about to fall asleep. It can be totally quiet or really loud in the house - it doesn't matter. I actually brought her the ER a couple weeks ago b/c I read on line a thing about infantile spasms & it sounded like what she was doing. The ER doc said she's too young for that and it's prob just a startle reflex. Im just wondering if she has an exggaterated startle reflex because she's a preemie.
