Many people do not carry with them details of whom should be contacted in an emergency, which makes it extremely difficult for emergency response personnel to locate family members of victims. Here's a great solution, which was developed by paramedics in the United Kingdom.

Simply program the acronym "ICE," which stands for "in case of emergency" into your cell phone's contact list, along with a phone number of a family member or friend who can be reached during an urgent situation. Notify your "ICE" contact that they will be called in the event of an emergency and inform them of any illnesses you may have along with any medications you take. Be sure that your "in case of emergency" person has a list of people they should contact on your behalf, such as your employer.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
