As an ex-nurse, I have always believed that everyone should learn the basic first aid principles as it is an essential life skill which could be very helpful to people around you. That belief has deepened since I became a mother as I realised that it is essential for every parent/carer to learn baby and child first aid. Babies and children are so accident prone – I have lost count how many times I have needed to apply first aid for both of my young children.
Did you know that you can learn first aid with British Red Cross (BRC) online and through courses around the UK? If you would like to learn more about the app and courses (suitable for parents who have kids aged between 0-12 years old), click on the link here.
