The Unmumsy Mum - Sarah Turner

There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids. If, like me, you haven’t done any First Aid training for a while (I don’t think I’d done any since school) I can highly recommend Mini First Aid (and I am NOT being paid for this post, I was just very impressed by Mini First Aid Devon’s class this morning. Other classes are available I’m sure).

We had to share this fab video made by the lovely Giovanna Fletcher - a friend of ours at Mini First Aid. Giovanna made the video to celebrate the publication of her new book 'Happy Mum Happy Baby' and it had us in tears today! ...

To celebrate the publication of HAPPY MUM, HAPPY BABY, I asked you to finish three sentences. I was blown away by your honest responses and was therefore compelled to spend hours and hours at my computer editing your words together. Thank you to every single person who sent in a video. I’m so sorry that I couldn’t use every one, but your support means so much! Big love, Gi. Xx
