I was reading online and did not realize the moro (startle) reflex is supposed to be gone by 3 months old or it could mean neurological problems. My son is almost 5 months old now and still has this reflex. He doesnt really startle in his sleep much, its more when he is scared. If we pick him up and hold him up in the air he sometimes gets scared (or when we are walking down the stairs). Im thinking he is getting that falling feeling and gets scared (which I dont blame him of course). But he will throw his arms out and his whole body kind of freezes and he gets this scared look on his face and starts to scream. Im just worried that he is still having this reflex when its supposed to be gone at 3 months.
