Infant First Aid

If your baby stopped breathing, would you know how to perform infant CPR? The scary truth is that only about a quarter of parents know how to.

The UK charity St. John Ambulance put together an easy how-to video on infant CPR in the form of a video with famous nursery rhyme characters. They’ve written a catchy song about performing CPR that reminds us what steps to take.

 

But consider this too…

If your child fell into the swimming pool and stopped breathing, would you know what to do?

Or if your child choked on a grape would you know how to effectively dislodge the grape without further injury to your child?

If a pot of hot stew was knocked off the stove onto your child, would you know how to treat the burn?

Nobody likes to think of their child being in an emergency situation, but learning infant first aid will give you the confidence to deal with one.

Its for that reason that SensoBaby is offering an Infant First Aid / Infant Safety course from 9am – 1pm on Saturday 6 February. Rescue One has designed this half-day course with parents and caregivers in mind. It will give you exactly what you need to know in an emergency in Gaborone.

Course content includes:

  • Evaluating an emergency
  • Baby or child choking on an object
  • Unconscious breathing baby and child
  • Unconscious not breathing baby and child (CPR)
  • Burns
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Swallowed something harmful
  • Bleeding heavily

You will also learn when and how to call the emergency services, and you’ll receive a comprehensive home safety checklist and details on constructing an effective infant first aid kit.

The course fee is P450 per person (SensoBaby Members P400).
