What can you do to get ready for starting solid foods before your baby is ready? Take an infant refresher CPR course. Getting your infant CPR skills up to snuff is incredibly important when preparing to start solid foods and baby-led weaning. Choking is a very rare - but real - risk, and knowing CPR can save your baby’s life.

In this episode I’m interviewing Brandon Doersken, who along with his wife Caitlyn run an online CPR training institute. I’ve been a huge fan of their courses since COVID forced all learning online and having CPR skills gives you the confidence that you’ll know what to do if your baby does choke on food when starting solid foods.

If you’re just getting ready to start solid foods and you have not (yet) taken a refresher infant CPR course, come check out some of the benefits along with ideas on how to implement the safety information you’ll use when you also begin baby-led weaning with your baby.
