Paramedics, Police and teeth….

We attended a save a baby’s life course the other night. It consisted of 2 sections, baby mouth to mouth, and what to do when a baby is choking. The evening was hosted by a father and son combination on behalf of The Royal Life Saving Society. The father is a policeman by day and the son a paramedic. Incredibly handy people to be around in a time of crisis i’d say, and most definitely of the right calibre to be teaching a session like this. And a very good job they did indeed, all 21 of us left feeling a bit more confident should one of these events happen to our child, we would be able to administer emergency aid until the pro’s arrive. To be honest in my case, this is only because they gave out handy step by step guides at the end. The father/son combo instructed very well it’s just trying to remember stuff in a dynamic situation is far easier said then done. Although i’m officially trained in these techniques now, i won’t go into them in detail here as i might get it wrong, but do please have a look around and see if a course is running in your area? Here’s a link to the Royal Life saving website www.lifesavers.org.uk. I’m wondering if there are courses run by dentists on teething relief techniques? Because there it is! The little white pearl bursting through his bottom gum that’s causing so much friction at the moment. Why are teeth such a bane on our lifes? I hate the dentists! I would rather attempt to walk across hot coals than go to the dentist, and now i look at little Ernest in such discomfort, dribbling away, saturating any piece of clothing that goes near him, it dawns on me where it all starts! There is definitely a case for false teeth from an early age……
