Lynn Jefferis

I've spend many years working and helping people in the local community. I am Grandma to Olivia, the best thing in the world, but it's an even bigger responsibility to be a grandparent than being a parent. I'm passionate about making a difference and help parents, grandparents and children equip themselves to deal with an emergency situation.

There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids. If, like me, you haven’t done any First Aid training for a while (I don’t think I’d done any since school) I can highly recommend Mini First Aid (and I am NOT being paid for this post, I was just very impressed by Mini First Aid Devon’s class this morning. Other classes are available I’m sure).

So who knows about tough cut scissors? I bought this mini first aid kit at this morning's Expectant Parent Event, full of everything you'd need in a first aid kit, including tough cut scissors - they cut through clothing & seatbelts, so perfect in an emergency situation. Now living in the glove box. All for £11.99 & you can buy them from Liz at Mini First Aid Devon. 👍

On Friday evening my son Henry choked.

It was put down as a BRUE; a Brief Resolved Unexplained Event

He wasn't eating. He wasn't playing with any toys. He was sat right with me.

The first aid training I learnt through this Mini First Aid course instinctively kicked in and I must stress to anyone thinking of doing such a course to DO IT. I was unaware something like that could even happen. They can choke at any moment, even on the excess saliva from teething. I don't know if what I did had any effect in helping the events, but I have been told that under the circumstances what I did was exactly the right thing.

Luckily Henry is now absolutely fine. Here is a picture of him in hospital after scaring the s*#t out of us... 🙄

There was a young boy called Freddie
He wasn't always so steady
He banged his head
And cut his leg
Poor Freddie! Have a cuddle with teddy.

He went to see Mini First Aid
Now he is no longer afraid
He learned what to do
If someone else hurts themselves too
Now Freddie will always be ready! #nationalpoetryday #poetryday2017 #earlyyears #eyfs #miniadventuresoffreddie

Last weekend myself and 5 Mummy Social mates took part in a Mini First Aid course at my house. For some reason, it's never crossed my mind to do a first aid course before now, but now I've done it, all I can say is... you need to do this too!!!

The session focused on performing basic first aid on children and babies including choking, CPR and burns, bleeds and head injuries. Such simple stuff but couldn't be more important to know if a situation arose. It's only 2 hours, only £20 and was also lots of fun!

We also took away with us a first aid book written for children called 'The Mini Adventures of Freddie' which the kids are fascinated by and a super cute first aid kit which was put to good use about 30 minutes after the session had ended when Belle fell off her bike 👌
