Frustration in response to a baby's crying is the #1 trigger for #ShakenBabySyndrome and infant abuse. Most parents and caregivers know that shaking a baby is wrong and it can cause severe injuries.
We always encourage parents of new babies to very carefully consider with whom you leave your baby. If it's a trusted friend or family member, make sure they have a calm demeanor and are able to cope with your baby when he's crying. If it's a child care provider, be sure they are properly licensed and have excellent references, along with conducting a thorough on-site interview.
Abuse can be reported nationally through the Childhelp® National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-4-A-CHILD or through your local reporting agencies.
