The Infant CPR Class

7 May

When Matt and I took our twin infant parenting class, one of the recommendations Natalie Diaz had for us was to take an infant CPR class.

“You never want to have to use those skills,” she said, “but if you do ever have to use them, that knowledge will be priceless.”

Sold.

Matt and I breathed a little sigh of relief after the 2.5-hour class. Hopefully if our kids have an emergency (or a kid at the playground, or a friend’s kid, etc.) we’ll be able to help.

The peace of mind was worth every penny.

    Thank you for sharing this information with us. I can’t tell you how important it is for parents to learn how to perform CPR on their children. I’ve actually been running a campaign to increase awareness about the importance of parents becoming CPR certified and I even created an infographic in which you can check out here – http://www.cprcertification101.com/child-cpr-infographic/
