It's time for a My Baby Basics Summer Promo
When it comes to first aid it’s always better to know it and not need it than to need it and not know it. I say that in every class I teach.
Why a promo?? Because at My Baby Basics I want every parent in our region to know how to save a life. It's really that simple. The kids of Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie, and the Central Coast need us to know what to do.
I want every parent to attend a baby and child specific course so that all our kids are in safe hands. I want the training to be accessible, so everyone can empower themselves with these skills.
Why now? The summer holidays are almost over, but that doesn't mean the swimming is! It's the time of year we all get busy getting back into our normal lives of work and school, but also spend a lot of time after school and on the weekends at the beach and by the pool.
Kids love water, it is so much fun to play in. As parents we need to let them play and jump and splash in the water, it's a summer must. I know my kids absolutely love it, they're little fish. Often the hardest part of the swim session is trying to get them to get out of the water!!
What our kids also need around and in water is to be actively supervised by an adult who is trained in first aid and CPR. Because it only takes a second for an accident to happen.
Drowning doesn't look like we think it does. Drowning takes only seconds, can happen in shallow water, and is SILENT. Drowning is the leading cause of preventable death in children in Australia aged 5 and under. So we all need to know what to do....
Knowing first aid and CPR is an essential skill all parents and carers should have. At My Baby Basics it is my mission and my passion to empower all parents with the skills to save a life. Even if you've done training in the past it is recommended by the Australian Resuscitation Council to refresh your skills annually.
Be the parent who knows what to do. Knowing CPR is all about muscle memory. When you're stressed in an emergency you need to know that you can just act and rely on that muscle memory to do the right thing. Training on baby and child size manikins is the best way to ensure you can trust your skills if they were ever needed. At My Baby Basics I ensure every person gets plenty of time on the manikins so you can get the feel for how to do CPR and know that you're doing it correctly.

Stay safe this summer,
