The Period of Purple Crying is a peak in infant crying that begins to rise at about 2 weeks of age and peaks in the 2nd month, and then falls in month 3-4. It can be frustrating for new parents because there seems to be no explanation. During the month of November, the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome distribute hats made by volunteers to bring attention to this common problem.
