WEST NEW YORK - Elementary students at P.S. 3 in West New York knitted purple stocking caps to remind parents about the dangers of shaken baby syndrome.
The caps will be given to newborns at seven New Jersey hospitals. It's part of a program to prevent shaken baby syndrome.
Each hospital is conducting a special training program for parents to help prevent frustration when a baby won't stop crying.
The purple hat is a reminder to handle the baby with care.
P.S. 3 is the only school in New Jersey knitting the caps. They've finished 200 of them so far this year.
The project is organized by Prevent Child Abuse NJ.
