At Home Learning Program For Parents

In 2001, more than 600 infants died from accidental choking or suffocation.

So, if there's a baby in your house, you might be interested in something new endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association. The two groups have created an at-home learning program that teaches parents and caretakers how to perform CPR on an infant, and how to help a small child if they're choking.

The kit includes an infant mannequin and an instructional DVD that walks your through every step of infant CPR with some quick reference guides. Experts say the home is the most likely place a child will suffer a heart attack, choke or suffocate and knowing how to help an infant in a crisis like this will greatly increase the chance of survival.

The kit costs $35 plus tax and shipping and it's available online at www.shopcpranytime.org
