OMG: Newborn Walks Minutes After Being Born

posted by Shelby Madson - 

Every parent thinks their kid is special, but trying to walk minutes after being born seems remarkable. Video has surfaced from a hospital in southern Brazil seemingly showing a newborn trying to walk as a doctor holds her under her arms. 

In the clip, the baby is seen taking steps as amazed nurses and doctors look on. It turns out, this isn't as rare as it seems. This is an example of the baby girl's nervous system kicking into gear. Called the "walking" or "stepping reflex," an infant loses the instinct after two months then gets it back at about a year-old when they learn to walk for good.
