Over 1400 years ago, when a child was born, the Prophet ﷺ made it his Sunnah (practice) to take a small part of a date and place it in the newborn's mouth. He would chew it until it was soft and then rub it onto the palate of the baby. This is called Taḥnīk.

'Today', BBC News has reported that experts have said: "A dose of sugar given as a

gel rubbed into the inside of the cheek is a cheap and effective way to protect premature babies against brain damage." 

This is why Muslims follow the Sunnah of Rasūlullāh ﷺ without questioning it. Science is only now discovering a tradition that was introduced 1400 years ago because Islām was and still is the forefront of development.
