Roots for breast, even if not breastfeeding

A Physical milestone for the week 2 age range.

TIP: When stroked on the cheek, your child will naturally "root" (open his mouth and lift his chin in a sucking position). Understanding this stimulus can let you make your child aware when it is time for feeding.
