In Oregon, Knitters create hats to help babies | Shaken Baby Syndrome

Local knitters got together at a local hospital Thursday for a good cause.
Randall Children's Hospital hosted a community knit-in for the "Click for Babies" purple hat drive.
The hats are part of an education campaign to teach people about shaken baby syndrome.
Experts say frustration over a crying baby can often trigger infant abuse.
Parents need to understand the normal developmental phase that all babies experience from two weeks to four months of age, characterized by long periods of crying lasting up to five hours a day.
In November and December, the newly knitted purple hats will be given to parents of newborns all over the state.
For more information about the campaign, including how you can get a pattern or share a pattern for a newborn's hat, go to
