IF YOU SHAKE ME , YOU WILL KILL ME

DONT SHAKE MY BABY

Shaken Baby Syndrome is physical child abuse that can occur when a young child is severely or violently shaken. Young children, especially babies, have very weak neck muscles and do not yet have full control of their head movements. When they are shaken, the head whips back and forth slamming their fragile brain tissue against the hard skull, causing bruising, bleeding and swelling inside the brain. Shaking a baby can cause many disabilities, which can evenutally cause death.
