Are newborn babies easily injured?
Newborn babies cannot support their heads for a few months after birth so always provide support for your newborn baby's head and neck when moving, lifting or carrying them. Your newborn baby has a fragile spine and is easily hurt. Never shake your baby or throw them up in the air, as this can cause spinal or brain damage or even death.
