New parents experience a mix of joy, love, and occasional fear. To navigate emergencies like choking, burns, and poisoning, Para CPR & First Aid offers paramedic-led training. Gain the knowledge and confidence to provide the best care for your precious little one.

Being a new parent is an exciting journey filled with joy, love, and sometimes a little fear.

This fear often stems from the worry of not knowing how to handle emergencies involving your precious little one. Fear not, as Para CPR & First Aid is here to guide you through the top seven most common emergencies faced by new parents in the Peel Region of Ontario, specifically Mississauga and Brampton.

1. The Dreaded Infant Choking Scenario

You're at home, feeding your baby when suddenly their joyful gurgles turn into gasps for air. Your heart pounds with panic and fear as you realize your baby is choking on a piece of food.

Knowing what to do in the various stages of choking are crucial.  Abdominal thrusts or back blows?  The guidelines change every few years.  Don't get caught without confidence in these critical moments.  

2. The Unexpected Allergic Reaction

During playtime, you introduce a new toy. Not long after, you notice hives forming on your baby's skin and they start to have difficulty breathing. Confusion and worry set in as you realize your baby may be having an allergic reaction.

Do you have an Epi-Pen?  Should you give an injection or not? Should you call 911?  These questions race through your mind - but with the right training you'll know exactly what to do.

3. The Unanticipated Burns

Preparing a warm bath for your baby, you accidentally spill hot water, causing burns on your baby's tender skin. Shock and distress flood you as you try to soothe your baby's pain.

Any guilt you feel would have to quickly get pushed aside as you race quickly into action. What's next?  Do you put coconut cream on your baby's skin?  Do you place the baby in cold water?  Accurate, fast action is paramount.

4. The Unforeseen Falls

In a blink of an eye, your baby rolls off the changing table and onto the floor while your back was turned. Regret and anxiety take hold as you rush to your fallen baby.

Bruises, bumps, shock... risk of something worse, like a fracture.  All common possibilities from such an accident involving a young infant .  You'll be prepared for all of them.

5. The Sudden Fever

Your baby's temperature spikes unexpectedly, accompanied by fussiness and loss of appetite. Concern and uncertainty fill you as you try to comfort your feverish baby.

Now what?  Cold water? Tepid water?  Luke warm?  Warm?  Cover in blankets or let them cool down?  What causes fevers, anyways?  Should you administer medication?  With first aid and CPR training the answers will be clear.

6. The Abrupt Cuts and Scrapes

A fun playtime turns into an emergency when your baby accidentally gets a cut from a sharp toy. Guilt and worry consume you as you try to stop the bleeding.  

Should you rub alcohol into the cut?  Or wash with soap and warm water?  Do you know the difference between gauze and bandages?  Or how to apply each?  Because in these situations, you'll need to.

7. The Unplanned Poisoning

You discover that your baby has somehow managed to ingest a household cleaning product. Panic and fear surge through you as you realize the urgency of the situation.
