"This gives permanent damage in half of survivors and it may kill," said Dr. Gilles Fortin, a pediatric neurologist at Montreal's Sainte-Justine Hospital.
Fortin said exhausted caregivers should prepare to cope with a crying baby by:
Putting the baby in a crib, closing the rails and going away. Breathing through your nose slowly. Returning to the child once you've calmed down.
"It's much less dangerous for this baby to be alone in this crib then to be in your exhausted arms," said Fortin.
