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).
