There is an error when taking the febrile seizure test, i keep putting the correct answer in for signs of seizure (stiff, hot, clenching, arched back) and it says i have failed. Otherwise a great app, reassuring to have on my phone in case of an emergency.

This app is brilliant and essential for parents with no first aid training. You can learn baby first aid and test yourself, however there is also an emergency section which talks you through what to do if you find yourself in certain situations. Finally there is a toolkit so that you can list your child's medication details and set reminders.

Awesome. I have had first aid courses for working with children but can't always remember how many compressions etc. This app has everything you need. Rashes, Choking, Resus and much more. I only wish there were 4 day courses near me.
