Do you know baby CPR? Here’s a list of medicine & simple CPR instructions
October 18, 2018
Last year my son got sick very badly with Croup. Croup is awful by the way, your kid’s throat is sore, they can’t eat anything, they get this awful temperature and you can see what a battle it is for them to breathe. We took him to the doctor but to be honest, I was too afraid to sleep even though we were medicating him with good medicine. I was scared that he might stop breathing and I wouldn’t know. Thankfully with lots of love, care and medication, he was back in good health soon and did not contract the sickness again (touch wood!), however, now with baby number 3 on the way, I realize how important it is to know about baby CPR in case of emergency.
Baby CPR: Here’s what to do
CALL AN AMBULANCE (10177/112 – Cell phone emergency)
5 puffs over the nose and mouth
30 hard pumps to the center of the chest (using 2 fingers)
2 puffs followed by 30 pumps (repeat this)
Medicines that you should have on hand for Newborns
I usually get all my goods from Dischem. The links within are not affiliate links and this is NOT a sponsored post.
Baby wash – I love the Purity head to toe wash but for very sensitive skin, use Pure Glycerine Soap – I know this is not really medicine but Glycerine Soap is amazing for when baby gets a rash due to sensitive skin and Epi-max Junior if any of the normal baby lotions give baby a rash. You can even bath your kid using Epi-max
Sanitizer – for sanitizing thermometers & baby nail clippers
Do you know of anything that I’ve missed? Please let me know in the comments!
Check out this video I found demonstrating the baby CPR technique:
