Learn Baby First Aid With The Professionals...
With our baby CPR course Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra wide, you will leave with clarity and confidence.
We are parents too. This means we provide the ultimate infant CPR course Australia wide with our online and in-home options.
You don’t need baby first aid until you really NEED it.
We started The Nest, Kids CPR & Allergy because we had witnessed these situations more than once, and then had to treat the aftermath.

When the baby started choking, my baby first aid training kicked in…
3 years ago, I was sitting in apark in Sydney and a 6 month old baby choked on a piece of sausage. She was grey, and not breathing. There was absolutely no coughing or no sound coming from her at all. Her mum was screaming and saying “I didnt know what to do!”
I just approached her on autopilot and started choking first aid on the infant. After nearly 5 back blows, I was starting to internally worry that I may need to turn her over and start chest thrusts, or even check to see if I needed to start baby CPR…
Then she had a massive vomit. To say I was relieved is an understatement. I started shaking and slowly feel like I came out of a laser-focused fog.
You see, the thing is that I knew what to do. It just felt automatic. I didn’t even think about what to do, I just did it.
This is how we want you to feel when you finish one of our baby CPR courses in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra or online.
