A note for Lesson no. 3, "Little Brains Wire Themselves to Their World," in Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context from page 57 is:

If you put a newborn on his mother’s belly, he will wriggle up to her breast by following the aroma.

This phenomenon is called breast crawl.[1]
