Two years ago 3 year old Bobby from Devon choked on a lollipop.

Bobby was sat with his mother after a trick or treat haul, when he began to make "choking noises" whilst eating a lollipop.
The sweet had detached from the stick and had got stuck in Bobby's throat.

His Mum, Deanna, shouted for help and husband Brett hit him hard on the back, to no effect. He passed out and he went floppy. Deanna then attempted chest thrusts and after several thrusts it came out with sick and blood.

Choking is mostly silent, so being able to react immediately in a choking emergency is vital.

✔️ Never leave children to eat unattended
✔️ Make sure children sit when eating
✔️ Ensure food is cut into manageable pieces - avoid round shaped food that easily blocks the windpipe
✔️ Make sure children know how to chew their food and don’t put too much in their mouth at once

In a choking emergency:

❤️‍🩹 Perform 5 back blows with the heel of your hand between the shoulder blades
❤️‍🩹 If that doesn’t work, perform 5 abdominal thrusts
❤️‍🩹 Shout for help and repeat until object dislodges
❤️‍🩹 If casualty passes out, perform CPR

Please be aware the technique for little ones under 12 months is different. If in doubt, why not enrol on a Mini First Aid 2 hour course or head to

This illustration and explanation gives important details of why floor and tummy time are important for development and building strength. Here's what you can find on Mommy Academy:

Development, strength and milestones happens on the floor!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Tummy time helps build so many muscles, sensory outputs and skills that they will need to get to the next milestones in their motor development journey.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It’s the foundation for everything!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Tummy time helps build:⁠⠀
✨Balance (vestibular sense)⁠⠀
✨Neck & back muscles⁠⠀
✨Visual tracking⁠⠀
✨Arm & wrist strength⁠⠀
✨Core strength⁠⠀
✨Flexor muscles⁠⠀
✨Spinal strength⁠⠀
✨Familiarity with gravity⁠⠀
⁠⠀

Paddling Pool Safety ‼️ 💦

Babies / children can drown in as little as 5cm (2 inches) of water.

Drowning is one of the commonest causes of child death – it's often silent, so you won't necessarily hear any noise or struggle.
Here are a few important tips to keep the children safe in and around the pool.

🔴 Never leave a baby toddler or child in a paddling pool even for the shortest time. It takes a moment for them to slip under the water which can be fatal. Children can drown in the smallest depth of water.

🔴 If you need to leave them to get something, or to answer the front door or the phone, take them out of the pool while you are away. Make it clear they are not allowed to get into the pool without you there. Take small children who may not understand or be able to follow instructions with you, keep them out of the garden while you are absent.

🔴 Check the temperature of the water to make sure it is not too cold (if you've just filled it) or too warm if it's the end of a hot day. With enough sun, the water can get very warm.

🔴 The grass may get wet and slippery around a paddling pool so be aware of the potential for accidents when the children climb out.

🔴 Suncream is essential in the summer so keep the children covered up even when playing in the paddling pool. Keep them in loose clothes (T-shirt and light trousers or leggings) if there is a lot of sun.

🔴 Make sure the children are aware that inside the pool is very slippery. Suggest they kneel rather than stand if unsteady on their feet.

🔴 Make sure the children walk and don't run round the pool so they don't trip and accidentally fall in.

🔴 Remove all toys at the end of the day so no one is tempted to reach in and get something from the pool and accidentally fall in.

🔴 Keep an eye on the dept. After rainfall it could be more full than when you last looked.

🔴 Enjoy your pool!
