  • you don't. you try to save them first. for infants you have them on your arm doing the HM so you can do that while running to the phone...if you can do both at once.

  • I really don't like that question. You can never prepare yourself for anything like that. Even if you have practiced it over and over and over, nothing ever goes the way you expected it in a panic manner. Just pray that God will help you if that time ever comes.

  • This is one of those things that no matter how you plan you will just react and everything will work out.

  • I agree w/ goaliemom93. You'll be suprised on how quickly your maternal instincts kick into high gear in the event of something like this.

  • You need to get help on the I think the minute on the phone is well worth it. Plus they have trained medical professionals to help you help the child. I think you would become super woman when you needed too.
