Choking First Aid

Choking First Aid

Starting solids can be a really exciting time for many parents. But it also comes with a whole new learning curve, for both parents and babies. 

 Supervising your baby or child at all times while eating is very important, to ensure your baby remains in a safe eating position (sitting and supported), and so you can act quickly if your child does start choking. 

Note: non-food items can also pose a choking risk. This article by Raising Children Australia contains some examples of non-food choking hazards.

It is highly recommended that all parents and carers attend a baby first aid course. Feeling equipped with first aid knowledge before you start, can make the whole process smoother and more enjoyable for everyone.

Rhythm First Aid is providing $20 off their first aid course to all Audrey & Alfie Customers with the code 'AA20'.
