The Period of PURPLE Crying
Several years ago, while serving as a hospital chaplain, I baptized a dying infant who was the victim of shaken baby syndrome.
The circumstances surrounding the child’s death were sad and traumatic; what’s more devastating is that it could have been prevented had the parents known about a developmental stage in a baby’s life when they cry more than any other time.
That’s why I’m heading to Charlotte’s WBTV tomorrow to share my story about the Period of PURPLE Crying: Keeping Babies Safe in North Carolina. Tune in and share the Web site with every parent and caregiver you know. We can all prevent shaken baby syndrome.
