Analysis by the NSPCC figures has found that more than 220 infants in the UK were killed or injured as a result of being shaken over the last 10 years.
A selection of Serious case reviews were carried out on 1,253 children and concluded that one in six youngsters had suffered a brain injury.
Child protection experts believe that this is actually just the tip of an iceberg and is primarily caused by parents losing control and snapping.
Dr Smith, a former safeguarding nurse in Leeds who has founded a programme to help parents before it gets to that point, says that she has seen the devastating impact of shaking babies in hospitals – where babies have died or suffered extremely severe disabilities and believes we all need to do more to prevent it.”
