Shaken Baby Risk Factors
Children under 12 months (1 year of age) are at the greatest risk for shaking. The average ages for SBS incidents are 5-8 months and 13-24 months 
SBS is more common in male infants and children than in females and 60% of victims are males  thus more male babies are shaken in the first year of life than females.
- Babies who cry non-stop, are fussy and are inconsolable are at high risk for SBS
- This syndrome is 100 % preventable. Anyone is capable of shaking a baby who is unaware of the potentially fatal effects of doing that act.
