Hi I'm new here, ok firstly I suffer with anxiety. Some days I'm fine, others everything gets to me. Well my daughter iis now three but I've been thinking back to when she were five months old she would not settle at all one night, I slept downstairs with her in her pram. I shook her pram from side to side with her in it for about two seconds. These days all I hear about is shaken baby syndrome. Is it possible she could have been damaged by this??? My mum tells me she's sure I'm not the first nor will I be the last to hove a pram a little shake through tiredness. Her pram was like the big bouncy Moses basket type. Sorry if I sound pathetic but going through anxiety stage x

Do you have any concerns about your DD's health/development?

I think you need to talk to your gp/hv as you may have undiagnosed pnd?

I don't think you damaged your baby but I'm no medical professional!

I think to cause damage (to brain or internal organs) you have to hold the baby and shake pretty hard. You were probably just doing the sort of motion you get if going round a corner fast in car or pushing pram on cobbles? Also if tthere had been any problems caused you'd know by now.

Hope you're ok xx

You sound unduly concerned about this. Shaken baby syndrome is when they are shaken so hard their brain whacks against their skull. There is no way a comforting shake in the pushchair could do this.
