If your child needed emergency first aid would you know what to do? If they were choking or had a seizure, would you know how to respond? If the answer is ‘no’, you’re not alone as 22% of parents don’t have any baby or child first aid knowledge, yet one in five parents will be faced with a medical emergency at some stage.
What is first aid?
It’s essential that all parents learn what to do if a child is choking, having a seizure or suffers an allergic reaction, plus how to perfom basic CPR, how to treat a burn and when a sick child requires urgent medical attention.
