Shaken Baby Syndrome
Infants and young children are more susceptible to Shaken Baby Syndrome because their heads are  large in relation to their bodies and because their shoulder and neck muscles are weak.

The message is simple – never shake a baby. No matter how tired, angry or frustrated you feel, you must never, never shake a baby. Shaking a baby can kill or cause serious injuries.
