Intro

Having a new baby can be very daunting. There's a sudden overwhelming sense of responsibility for your child's life. When your baby starts to take their first steps your fear for their safety increases. What would you do if your baby were choking? What would you do if a toddler were drowning? What if your baby's temperature spikes? What would you do if your child had a rash? What if... what if... all the what if's can keep you up at night worrying. We all hope we will never encounter these situations but if you did you would be so much more prepared if you had recently taken a paediatric first aid course.
