Reasons Why Shaken Baby Syndrome Might Occur

Shaken baby syndrome is most often the result of a frustrated caregiver or parent shaking a baby in response to persistent crying or fussiness. The immature neck muscles and fragile brain of an infant make them particularly susceptible to injury from shaking. Other causes may include a caregiver’s lack of understanding about the dangers of shaking a baby, unrealistic expectations of child behavior, and stress. It is essential for caregivers and parents to recognize the potential consequences of shaking a baby and seek help if they feel overwhelmed or unable to cope with the demands of caring for an infant.
