Frequently Asked Questions
I can't decide whether to take Babysafe or a CPR class. What is the difference?
back to top
Babysafe’s main focus is preventing injuries in the first 12 months 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.
Babysafe can be life-saving and 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 choose a CPR class.
Can I bring my baby to the class?
Yes. Babies are welcome to attend the Babysafe class. However, we ask that you step out of the room if your baby needs some extra attention. back to top
