Couple Educates About Dangers Of Shaking Babies

By: CBS4denver.com

"(CBS4) DENVER A couple from Superior shared their sad story at Children's Hospital to educate people about the dangers of shaking a child.

Sean McLaughlin and his wife's young son, Von, was shaken by his nanny earlier this year.

They said they feel lucky because 25 percent of shaken babies die from their injuries, but Von survived although it'll be years before they know what sort of long term damage he may suffer.

"He was 4-months-old when we had a caregiver come into our house," McLaughlin said as he stood in front of a quilt with the names and pictures of victims of Shaken Baby Syndrome.

"I received a phone call saying 'your baby's at home and he's not moving,'" McLaughlin said.

Their former nanny has since pleaded guilty to two felony counts of child abuse.

"We found out that this individual, within 4 weeks period of time, shook our baby not once but twice to where he hemorrhaged in the brain and he had old blood in his the brain and he also was now bleeding in his brain because of this current situation," McLaughlin said.

The affidavit painted a frightening picture of Von's time with his sitter, but the McLaughlins still wanted to educate parents and caretakers about the need for patience.

Kohls' Department Store donated $400,000 to Children's Hospital to fund an ongoing Shaken Baby Syndrome prevention campaign throughout the state.

Shaken Baby Syndrome can leave a child deaf, blind, brain damaged and it increases their chances of cerebral palsy.

The nanny involved in the McLaughlin case has already pled guilty to two felony counts of child abuse."
