about all babies cry

An evidence-based, multi-media intervention designed to prevent abusive head trauma in the first year of life, when the highest proportion of incidents occur.

Drawing from decades of research on infant behavior, All Babies Cry: Tried and True Tips for Comforting Your Newborn (and Yourself) empowers new parents with practical demonstrations of infant soothing and clear strategies for managing normal stress in parenting. 

This video series follows real parents for the first six months of life at home with their new baby. Fathers are depicted as equal, primary caregivers, who appear in 70% of all visuals demonstrating most infant care and stress management strategies. All Babies Cry messaging was created from formative focus groups and promotes the “Strengthening Families” framework of protective factors.
