    My Mum has just told me that her new nextdoor neighbour, who is a single Mum with 2 toddlers and a little baby. This next door neighbour came screaming to my Mum's door and passed the baby to my Mum and it wasnt breathing! So my Mum got the baby breathing and rang an ambulance. She said the baby was burning up, convulsing, not breathing, and its eyes were rolling back into its head :cry:
    This has really really scared me! What if this happens to my baby and there is no one else at home!? I wouldn't know what to do. And why would this happen to a baby?
    Im scared now :(
    I hope the baby is ok though.

    That does sound scary!! I hope it is ok.
    The thought scares me too. Do you have alot of neighbours? I don't think we can worry about these things though - it may never happen.

    It's easier said than done to say 'don't worry, it rarely happens', especially if you're a new mum. If your worried, then look up children's first aid courses in your area. At least if you have some knowledge behind you it will make you feel more prepared just in case. :hugs:

    :hugs:

    ^ I agree with the above though....however I can also agree that we should not let it worry us...as there are many reasons for many things.

    :hugs: sorry this had to happen.

    Yeah i was just thinking about doing something like that.
    Because I just realised I would have no clue what to do in a situation like that.
    We have a house on the left of ours but the woman that lives their is away on some sort of tours for months on end. I dont know anyone is this road either.

    I was thinking about things the other day - little things like, what if i want a shower when we have the baby and there's no one else in the house? I can't just leave him on his own? But this has just made me really scared now - I'll never want to leave him at all, I'll just wanna look at him all the time to make sure he's ok.

    Mum has just told me though, the baby had a cold & temperature and the house was too hot and the baby was left sleeping in a coat.

    Sorry - didn't mean to belittle things - I suppose it's a different aspect for me as I have a clinical background.
    A first aid course is a great idea.

    Try not to worry... I know its hard, and things will happen to our babies. But that is all part of the package.

    that does sound scary hun, i think the first aid course sounds a good idea and at least you will have some idea of what to do if something did happen.
