A new mother is interested in seeing what her infant's eyes look like. Which is the most effective way for the nurse to stimulate the infant to open their eyes?


•When held upright, an infant will open the eyes reflexively.

•Separating the eyelids causes the eyes to close due to the blink reflex.

•Moro reflex also causes the eyes to close.

•Infants are sensitive to light and will close their eyes in the presence of a bright light.
