  • I will now that I have taken the infant and child CPR classes and I recommend that EVERY parent do the same, it's just so scary!

  • Yes, I have taken the childs cpr course and the hubby is a volunteer firefighter. About once a month we run a "what if" and Im supposed to come up with the correct answer because he's not always reachable.

  • Absolutely. When I was pregnant for my oldest I was certified in CPR, and I continue to take refreshers as needed. Sometimes help jsut can't come fast enough, it's important that every parent/caregiver knows how to perform CPR and basic first aid. Some hospitals are even offering classes free for new/expecting parents.
