Event to discourage shaking of babies

From Staff ReportsApril 19, 2007 

— The N.C. Children's Hospital will sponsor an event from noon to 1 p.m. Friday to raise awareness of shaken baby syndrome.

The event will feature fathers and other men gently rocking babies in rocking chairs on the stage in the Children's Hospital lobby. Shaking babies can cause severe injuries and death.

A display table will have educational materials, video and tips on how to prevent the shaking of a baby.
