Luckily, baby emergencies are often few and far between. Among my friends, along with my own experiences, I've seen very few actual baby emergencies. Most of the time, the most common emergencies can be headed off with a little something I like to call, 'paying attention to your child.' Do this, and you're less likely to experience any real trouble. That said, baby emergencies are real and do happen. Even to parents who pay careful and close attention. Even if you baby-proof. With this in mind, the best thing you can do is be prepared and try to stay calm. Over the last 3.5 years or so, we've looked at how to manage a slew of baby emergencies here at P&B.
