What is Abusive Head Trauma/Shaken Baby Syndrome? 

Once termed Shaken Baby Syndrome, Pediatric Abusive Head Trauma is the third leading cause of head injury among children in the United States and is the leading cause of serious head injury in the first year of life according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention .  Abusive Head Trauma can be cause by shaking a child, hitting their head against a hard object or a combination of shaking & impact.  Inconsolable crying is the #1 reason people shake an infant. Other reasons include potty training difficulty, feeding problems, and interrupting an activity the caregiver is trying to complete.
