The ICON Programme is a preventative programme, based around helping parents cope with a crying baby. The word ‘ICON’ represents the following message:
I –Infant crying is normal
C –Comforting methods can sometimes soothe the baby
O –It’s OK to walk away
N –Never, ever shake a baby

On behalf of the Sandwell Learning from Practice Reviews subgroup, these briefings are being shared following two Spotlight Review referrals. These were regarding children who were exposed to harm and where multi agency learning was identified.
