This is something I noticed right away with Nora...when I was going through all the newborn reflexes (they are listed in "The Baby Book") I realized she does not have a grasp reflex! Her hands have been uncurled from birth and she does NOT grab on to your finger if you place it in her palm. She can grasp things but it seems to be at her volition. She uses her hands very well for a young baby (in my opinion) so I'm not sure if the absence of the grasp reflex is cause for concern. I forgot to bring it up at her 2-week checkup. She doesn't have another checkup for at least a month. Do you think this is something to worry about? It's so odd.
