First Year First Aid is not designed to be a book to go running to when an incident occurs. Nor is it designed to take the place of quality first aid training with a qualified instructor, specifically one who is genuinely passionate about protecting babies and young children.
The use of this book is similar to that of a coffee-table book. Pick it up regularly and browse through it. You don’t have to read it from front to back. In fact, we recommend mixing it up a bit. Read over the tips and indulge in the real-life stories. Put it in your bathroom. Copy a page and pop it on your fridge or the back of your toilet door.
This book is to be a constant reminder about first aid for babies and young children. The more you read over it, the more the contents are in your subconscious.
Let’s make the first few moments in an emergency as easy as possible. The information is already in your brain because you’ve gone over it so many times and been responsible enough to invest in some physical training in a simulated environment, so that an emergency with your own child isn’t the first time you’ve put the information to use.
The real-life stories are to ensure each reader can understand the relevance of the information. These things really do happen in real life, but each has a happy ending! Some of the stories are about the author’s own experience; others are from her friends or members of the general public. Each story is genuine and really happened.
A ‘sign’ is something that the patient can feel, such as nausea or pain. A ‘symptom’ is something we can see or measure, such as fever and bleeding. This makes things difficult for babies because they cannot verbalise their signs so we have to rely on the symptoms, and our instincts. We have listed the signs and symptoms together in this book, so you can be aware not only of what you may be seeing, but also of what your baby may be going through that you cannot see.
