Do you know what to do if your baby is choking or suffers a bad fall? Check out these step-by-step guidelines on first aid for your baby. You might also want to print this out and hang it on your refrigerator. Having it handy in an emergency situation could save your child's life.
Remember that this isn't a substitute for taking a first-aid course. (Also, the techniques used for babies 12 months and younger aren't the same as those for older children.) The Red Cross, many hospitals, and some childbirth groups and colleges offer infant CPR classes. Call your local Red Cross chapter or ask your doctor to recommend a course.
