In Roots of Empathy we have been learning to never shake a baby.
Baby's go to hospital because they have been shaken. It causes bad injuries and for example they have brain damage, deafness, blindness and more very bad injuries you might know of! A baby might be crying because it is hungry, lonely, uncomfortable clothing, Diaper changing and many more. Also we have a baby to look after in room 16( for real every three weeks!) His name is Niko. We looked at his feelings and what he was going to do next and asked his mother some questions about him. But most of the questions that we asked her were yes or no answers. We asked her questions like:
Does he have allergies?
How often does he sleep?
How do you spell his name?(because Uala didn't know how to spell his name!)
And we asked plenty more questions.
Also remember this, that a crying baby is not a bad baby it is a baby that has a problem.
