Day 155/365: Newborn Baby Carrying Safety Tips
Do not shake your baby! When an infant or toddler is shaken, the brain bounces back and forth against the skull. This can cause bruising of the brain (cerebral contusion), swelling, pressure, and bleeding in the brain. The large veins along the outside of the brain may tear, leading to further bleeding, swelling, and increased pressure. This can easily cause permanent brain damage or death. Shaking an infant or small child may cause other injuries, such as damage to the neck, spine, and eyes.
3. Babies are little angels. Do not carry them roughly and rashly. They can feel the way you carrying them and directly they will respond to it.
