Last night we made our first trip to the emergency room with our toddler. It was frightening, urgent, and I am so glad it’s over.
There is nothing worse than getting a call from your husband stating that he has to take your youngest child to the ER and will you please meet him there. He was handling 2 toddlers by himself, so he couldn’t give me any details other then Zeke had cut his finger and it was bad. For my husband to say emergency room, or describe it as a “bad” situation, I knew it was serious.
You can read the whole story of our toddler going to the emergency room here, but what I wanted to provide is some tips to know before an emergency room visit happens. We have 4 kids, and with Zeke’s injury last night, we’ve now had trips to the ER with all of them. Accidents happen and with kids, they happen often. Chances are you will need to take your child at some point and knowing a few things in advance can help prepare you.
It is best to be prepared, and I hope these tips will come in handy if you ever need to bring your toddler to the emergency room.
