A new baby can be a big challenge for even the best parents, especially when that infant begins to cry and nothing you do seems to calm him.
Inconsolable or excessive crying is the most common trigger for shaken baby syndrome, a form of child abuse that claims countless lives each year.
According to the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome, it's estimated between 1,400 and 10,000 cases of shaken baby syndrome occur every year in the U.S.
Roughly 30 percent of all shaken babies die. The rest of the victims are left with severe brain damage, altering their lives forever.
