Lil Tip: Infant CPR

Taking care of a tot is no small undertaking— there are lots of risks for lil ones: choking, falling in a pool or slipping under water in the bathtub, even getting caught in window cords. For babies, the number one cause of accidental death is choking.

Don't wait for something to happen, be prepared ahead of time. Invest in your child's safety by taking an Infant and Child CPR class, which you can find through your local Red Cross. Kids have a much better chance of survival if CPR is performed immediately, so it only makes sense for parents to become certified in this life saving technique. The same goes for your nanny or babysitter.

This is a great tip! I'm taking a refresher course for infant and child CPR where my 4 year old has his swim lessons. With a new baby on the way, it's a good time to refresh my knowledge!!

Infant CPR classes are also offered through the prenatal classes at the hospital where I'm delivering. Worth checking if your hospital offers them as well.
