Sarah Hunstead from CPR Kids worked in emergency paediatrics for 14 years, so she knows what kind of things are worthy of hospital treatment. She also knows the best and safest things parents can do in the case of burns, bumps - and peas up the nose.

Sarah's book, A Life, a Finger, a Pea up the Nose: A Practical Guide to Baby and Child First Aid, offers step-by-step advice on how to help your little ones safely and effectively if an accident does happen.
