We've been making ourselves useful while we wait for our little bundle. We have time to kill so why not learn as much as we can about child care and child safety. I have been scouring the Internet for affordable classes and found a FREE infant CPR class offered at The Brooklyn Hospital. I immediately signed us up. Date night in Brooklyn!
The class size was about six people and lead by a very personable and friendly doctor from the Pediatric department. This class is not for certification but more as an introduction for expectant and new parents or anyone interested in infant CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation). We were all given a baby to work on. At each step, we watched an brief video, were given hands-on instruction and then time to practice on our baby. The instructor came around to make sure we were using the proper technique.
