We've been asked by the team at the British Red Cross to find 250 MNers to download and review their Baby and Child First Aid app.

The app is available free of charge on iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad or Google Play for Android devices.

For this product test we are looking for parents of children aged from birth up to 5 years old. Testers will also need to have a smartphone or tablet which is an Android or Apple device.

British Red Cross say "Our FREE app is packed full of essential first aid learning for parents. It includes videos, quick tips and self test sections to test your knowledge. App users can search for their nearest accident and emergency department anywhere in the UK using the hospital finder. There is a useful section on preparing for first aid incidences and a medical records section to record childrens medication and allergies. The Baby and Child First Aid app has been designed and developed for parents and carers of children to make learning first aid easy and accessible.

The app is primarily a way of learning first aid at your leisure before an emergency situation arises. However it does also include a section for use in an emergency."

The idea with this test is that we select our testers, who then download the free app we'd then like you to share it with friends, family and/or neighbours and to report back on what you think on a thread on Mumsnet. We'll also be asking you to add a review on the iTunes App Store or Google Play for Android and on the MN app review pages

All MNers who take part and who add feedback as required will be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a first aid learning pack from the British Red Cross (consisting of two Baby and Child First Aid course gift cards worth up to £120, a first aid manual worth £10.99 and a compact first aid kit worth £10.99.

If you have a child aged 0-5 and a smartphone/tablet and would like to take part please add your details here

Thanks and good luck MNHQ

PS: Everyone is of course welcome to download the app even if they dont review!

PPS: British Red Cross always like to hear about how you have used the first aid skills that you have learned or situations that have inspired you to learn first aid. Please email your story to redcrosstraining@redcross.org.uk titled 'My story'

Hi! I put this on my iPad and it's working great. I'm working though the "learning" bits and doing each test as I get to it. Seems to be sinking in! I've done a review on the review pages and posted about it on my blog too http://www.family-walker.co.uk/

I've downloaded this and played for a few days. I think the app is great - and have posted the review on MN.

Only downside I could find was that you can't 'search' easily for non-emergency situations. E.g. if DD was stung by an insect, I did eventually find out what I was supposed to do, but there was no quick way that I could see to locate the info.

Otherwise - I love this app.
