What’s in my son’s nursery bag

Hi please check out my new video showing, what I pack for my son for nursery.

He has now started school, but thought I would show what I packed for him, for when he went to nursery.

I will also do one soon for what I pack for him for school, and what he takes.

I like these types of videos seeing what other parents pack for their children and I will be doing a video of what I pack in my son’s changing bag, too.

Many thanks for reading,

Continuously Anxious

Taking my son to school I have become continuously anxious, and it is the lead up to it that I continuously play in my mind, the getting the uniform on, as at times my son refuses to get dressed, giving him medicine as he has a cough and cold, brushing his teeth and getting his backpack on, remembering his bottle of water, his book bag and today I had to take in his temporary PE kit.

I don’t know what it is I am expecting but just getting him into the school yard just takes up so much energy because I get so anxious about it, and next week it is going to build up even more as I start a new job. YIKES!

He is fine going to school, he got a bit upset on the second day, but so far he is going in no fuss.

Its just me who gets so worked up over the walk to school and back, that once I drop him off the feeling of relief is out of this world.

Am I the only one who feels so anxious getting their child to school? I see other parents rushing to get their children in school and I think, do they do the same? Do they get anxious?

I have spoken to a few other mums and said hello, but not had a full blown conversation. I will admit I find it hard to get into conversations with strangers and people I haven’t gotten to know.

I just wished I didn’t get so anxious when it comes to taking my son to school. I know as I keep on taking him to school it will become less stressful. Well I hope so. Please tell me does it get easier? Then it is keeping up to date with the regular school letters, filling in his school diary, making sure he reads three times a week, and then there will be home work.

School is a whole new experience, different to nursery, as he has to go to school there is no exception for lateness, and it’s whole new transition that is quite overwhelming in parts.

However he is there now doing his first full day so we will see how he got on when I pick him up later.

Nose bleeds

Nose bleeds can be common if your child is like mine and picks it a lot.

We do try to stop him as much as possible, but often he can pick it so much it can bleed.

How do you treat a nose bleed. Ask the child to tip their hand forward, and then hold their nose just on the middle of the nose the softest part for 10 minutes.

Encourage the child to breath through their mouth, and use a disposable cloth to wipe up any blood gone on any surfaces or the floor. They need to keep breathing through their mouth, and should avoid hot drinks, picking or blowing their nose for 24 hours.

If they do get frequent nose bleeds then do seek medical advice just to make sure it isn’t anything more.

Here is a video which talks more about how to stop nose children’s nose bleeds:

DR ABC- CPR

I think as a parent knowing first aid for your children can really give you a good piece of mind. Hopefully you may not need it, but it is still worth knowing just in case.

This is how to do CPR, and practice following the DR ABC rules.

Check for:

  • Danger – keep yourself safe at all times, so check to make sure the area in which the child has fallen is safe for you to access
  • Response – Call them and touch their shoulders to see if they respond to you
  • Airway- Tilt their hand back, not too far if it is a baby, but enough so you can check for any obstruction in their throat, and if they are breathing
  • Breathing- Check for breathing by putting your ear to their mouth not touching but enough to get a clear sign if the child is breathing or not
  • If the child is not breathing then you must carry out CPR
  • Circulation: Hold their chin and squeeze their nose, and do 2 breaths, by putting your mouth over theirs, and use a CPR mouth shield, as this will stop any infections being passed on
  • Then do 30 chest compression’s, by pushing down onto their chest with hands pressed down on top of each other, between the breast area and then do mouth to mouth again and 30 chest compressions, until the person is breathing again
  • If it is a baby, do mouth to mouth, using a mouth shield but cover nose and mouth, and use two fingers or thumbs to carry out 30 chest compression’s
  • If they gain consciousness, then put them in the recovery position, by putting their outer hand (one furthest away to you) to their opposite cheek, lift their outer leg (the leg further away from you) and bring them over to their side by bringing them towards you
  • Remember to have someone call am ambulance whilst you do CPR, or ask another trained first aid person to take over whilst you call for help instead

Here is a video showing you more of how to carry out CPR:
