  1. I am lucky enough to have done basic first aid through my work. Even when my son managed to fall down the stairs (this one should be in the Potty list) I could stay calm as the training of what to do and what to look for just kicked in. I would recommend it to everyone.

  2. Thankyou very much for this very informative post! I've done first aid training through work as a carer but it is different when dealing with small children and babies. Its brilliant that you are raising awareness for parents that they can do something in this situation not just wait for the ambulance when it may be too late. Excellent post!
