Why is baby first aid important?
Many parents are worried about different conditions that could affect their baby. If you're a parent, grandparent, a carer or if you work with babies, learning baby first aid will give you confidence to save a life when it really counts.
Our baby first aid course teaches simple, lifesaving skills. First aid topics are taught in line with babies’ developmental stages, helping to reassure parents and prepare them for the first year and beyond.
We cover a whole range of different conditions and techniques; from knowing how to put an infant in the recovery position if they are unresponsive but breathing, to giving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if they’re not.
What will you learn?
What to do if your baby is choking
What to do if your baby is unresponsive
What to do if your baby has a seizure
What to do if your baby isn’t breathing
What are the requirements?
This course is suitable for parents, grandparents and anyone who spends time looking after babies.
