Baby and Child first Aid

Every parent dreads their child getting a nasty head bump.



Lyndsey from Mini First Aid Edinburgh and West Lothian has some top advice for you . . .


· Where possible, baby proof your home to minimise the risk of bumps

· For a head bump, use a cold compress (either from the fridge or a wet paper towel) and apply to the bump for 10 minutes. Encourage your baby to rest and relax or for a toddler/young child, read a story so you can monitor them

· Sickness, drowsiness, dizziness or any unnatural behaviour could be concussion. You need to take get your child to A & E as soon as possible

· If you are leaving your child with a carer following a head bump, make them aware so they can continue to monitor for any signs of concussion
