Did you see the news this weekend about the mailman in California who saved a baby's life? He was delivering mail when a woman came running out of her house with her lifeless 19-month-old, crying for help. The mailman did CPR on the baby and saved her life.
When I was in the hospital, my doctor told me I should take a CPR course, but I still haven't. MountainPawz asked members of the CafeMom Newcomers Club if they knew CPR and of the 50 responses, almost everyone of them is certified in or knows CPR. Wow!
I did a little digging to find out how to go about learning CPR, and some of the Newcomers Club moms had great suggestions:
3. Have a CPR party! If there are other parents in your neighborhood who are interested in learning it, you can have them over and have a certified Red Cross instructor come and teach all of you. (from skylar682)
4. Get certified online. Take First Aid Web's "CPR for Infants." The course is free, but if you want a printed certificate, it will cost you.
Do you know CPR? Does your babysitter?
