Yes for a baby, I took classes at the hospital in baby care and they teach you CPR on a baby and child
I work as a nurse so I've been certified and trained since college but I do ask my babysitters be trained just in case. Not a hard thing to learn and it truly does save lives!
I would suggest it for anyone, and be sure it covers infancy as well.
Yes! It's something you have to renew I believe every two years. There's a sense of security that comes with it but I still fear that I would freeze up in a scary situation 😞
I’ve worked in child care as a career and get re-certified whenever it expires. I plan to continue and urge all mommas to be certified. I am currently trying to convince my fiancé to get the training and certification for times I’m not home with LO. I get mine through American Red Cross and it’s good for 3+ years depending on the program. They have locations all over the US that offer all different types is courses. I take the CPR/First Aid and AED courses for adults, children and infants. I know a lot of hospitals offer training courses in the NICU dept. I just like ARC because it is a very rigorous course that includes training in so many other areas.
