    $\begingroup$ Just a stepping reflex: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… . That's it, too much internet for today, i'm gonna read a book... (PS: I speak portuguese, and that midwife seems very surprised. I believe she is faking or exagerating, because she should know that this is a normal reflex). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The baby isn't walking exactly. It can't support it's own weight. It's stepping: moving its feet in a step-like fashion when the tops of the feet are brushed against a surface or placed on the surface, a primitive reflex like the Moro Reflex, present in all normal newborns. $\endgroup$ May 29, 2017 at 13:54

    $\begingroup$ @GerardoFurtado - Well, then, I agree with you. It's for the camera, I guess. $\endgroup$ May 29, 2017 at 14:01

    $\begingroup$ @anongoodnurse Actually, to be fair, I just watched it again, the person surprised is the person filming, and maybe she is not aware of this reflex (or she's aware, but was excited). The only thing the midwife/nurse says is "she walked from here to there... I was about to give her a bath". So, the midwife is not that impressed. $\endgroup$
