FREE CPR Classes, Yoga Classes, Fitness Classes, Biking Events/Classes/Swaps, and more @ Sports Basement

I babysat for two little girls during college.  The 4 year-old was kind of an asshole (can you say that about a kid?), but the toddler was pretty cool.  Anyway, one day the mom asked me if I knew CPR and Heimlich maneuver, in particular the methods designed for toddlers.
