The scary statistics don’t lie–unintentional choking and suffocation are the leading cause of all injury deaths for infants under the age of one.
Because choking often happens in the home, the American Heart Association has developed the Infant CPR Anytime Personal Learning Program. The kit, which can be purchased for $34.95, includes a CPR manikin, a 22-minute skills training DVD and 2 fold-out Quick Reference Skills Reminders.
As the parent of two young children, I know how hard it can be line up babysitters and find the time to take the CPR class, so I can’t think of a better way to learn these lifesaving skills. The CPR Anytime Personal Learning Program would also make a great shower gift.
