I learnt this on my first aid course, I don't think anything ever prepares you to have to do this on any baby let alone your own baby.

It's really good to have as a memory jogger! Thanks ever so much

This is a really good idea, thankyou!

I've just signed up to do a peadiatric first aid course at my local sure start centre, ites free of charge and they even provide the child care (its a two hour course). So if anyone is interested in doing a course it might be worth calling your local sure start centre and asking if they have anything planned.

Thanks for putting this together - it's vital information evert parent should know!

We were always taught that when giving rescue breaths to a baby you have to be very careful not to over-inflate their lungs, as they are so much smaller than ours. We were taught that you should fill your cheeks with air and only use this amount per breath. I don't know if you want to update your post with this - it was stressed very heavily in the class I did.
