I can't decide whether to take Babysafe or a CPR class. What is the difference?
Babysafe’s main focus is preventing injuries in the first two years of life. In Babysafe, you will learn about basic infant development in relation to safety, what injuries infants and young toddlers are most at risk for, and many ways to prevent these injuries from happening. The class will end with a demonstration of basic infant CPR and choking rescue and an opportunity to practice on the infant CPR manikins.
Both CPR courses use official American Heart Association curriculum to teach the skills needed to perform CPR or choking rescue, and each allow a great deal of time for hands-on practice and questions.
Both our CPR classes and Babysafe can be life-saving and can be very valuable to new families. We recommend taking Babysafe to learn about the many ways to keep your baby safe while they learn and grow, and then choosing which CPR class best meets your needs.
