First Aid Tips For Parents

As responsible parents, you must always protect your little one from all potential dangers and therefore take all essential steps to make your home as safe as it should be for a child. Unfortunately, despite all your efforts, your child still gets hurt in one way or the other.

Since you’re required to take necessary action immediately during those critical moments, knowing the basics of first aid becomes inevitable for you. Below are a few first aid tips you must be aware of to tackle your baby’s minor injuries on your own.

Head Injuries

Children, especially those about to start walking, tend to fall more often and end up bumping their head on the floor or solid objects around them. If your baby ever gets a head injury due to falling from a significant height or hitting his head on something, simply get him or her to rest and apply something cold (like a few ice cubes wrapped ice in a piece of cloth) to the affected area. In case of serious head injury, seek for medical assistance immediately.

Nose bleeding

Nosebleed, medically known as Epistaxis, is a common problem in children, which is normally caused by a sharp blow to their face, sneezing, and nose picking. The most important first aid step to help a child experiencing nosebleed is stopping the bleeding first. Some people think tilting the head of the child back is the proper solution to the problem, the contrary is true. You need to lean your little one’s head forward and gently pinch the nostrils with pressure continuously for about ten (10) minutes. If bleeding continues after ten minutes, then contact your pediatrician immediately.

Eye Injuries

Like normal head injuries, eye injuries also need to be treated with special care. If a substance gets in your baby’s eye, hold the eyelid open and flush the eye with cool, fresh water for about 2 minutes, do not rub the eye or try to remove the substance yourself. Instead take your child immediately to an eye specialist.
