Teachers and child care personnel must be certified in infant and child CPR. We as parents do not, but I like to have this posted as a reference. First Aid and CPR for babies and children is important to know.
Just a simple, quick tip that could come in handy, and hopefully will never have to be used: Post the steps for CPR and Rescue Breathing in a couple of spots in your home. Included are basic first aid resources when you need to know First Aid and CPR for Babies and Children.
The steps listed in the image are for an infant, but you can check the American Red Cross e-booklet for the steps required to complete both infant and child CPR, Rescue Breathing, Treatment for Poison, etc. It is comforting to me to know that I have this in my home when I have a babysitter over, or even family watching my children. It never hurts to be safe. Take care of those beautiful babies!
