An exclusive babygrow designed to help teach parents how to give first aid to their baby is being launched by leading first aid charity St John Ambulance, together with Tesco. The new babygrow will teach baby CPR, after 74% of parents said that their baby not breathing is the first aid emergency they fear most.

Since only 1 in 4 mums and dads know what to do in this situation, parents are being urged to pick up the free, limited edition babygrow for three to six-month-olds in selected Tesco stores on Thursday 13 October, with a suggested donation going to St John Ambulance. Parents can visit Tesco Baby Club for more information.
