Appropriate shaking can stimulate the inosculation of cranial nerve and make baby quiet down, but that must be done under the affordable range of the cerebrospinal fluid.
If you over shake baby in long time, especially for baby within 10 months old, it is likely to result in cerebral concussion, cerebral edema, even intracranial bleeding since the brain will be constantly sloshing in the skull cavity and the immature brain tissue will hit the hard skull directly.
