In brief: Reasonable

Babys with shaken baby injury can recover to normal if saved from repetitive injury and chronic trauma.
One acute event is often fully overcome. Repeated injury will result in permanent damage. The key is to have appropriate index of suspicion and to refer to a social service team who can remove the baby from the environment soon enough to save him from permanent damage.
