Shaken Baby Syndrome
How to prevent it!
- Give the baby a pacifier.
- Run a vacuum cleaner within hearing range of the infant.
- Take the baby for a walk in a stroller or a car ride.
- Put the baby in a safe carrier on top of a clothes dryer while it is operating (do not leave the baby unattended).
- Simply hug and cuddle the child gently. Young infants can be held in a sling or front carrier that keeps the infant close to the body.
