About First Aid Guides

It's practically impossible to parent a child from infancy through adolescence without a few situations — minor or major — that need medical attention at home or by a health care professional.

Our 1-page guides take the guesswork out of what to do for more than 50 common mishaps and illnesses. They'll help you handle many childhood emergencies and less serious, but still scary, situations. Print or bookmark them for easy access.

Make sure you're prepared for anything by having an emergency contact sheet handy. Post this on the fridge or other easy-to-find location:
