Our Story

Theo Mallos is an Intensive Care Paramedic, a 2018 recipient of the Victor Chang Heart of Gold Award and the owner of Rescueblue.  

 After attending a heart-breaking job in his role as a paramedic, Theo and his wife Chanelle embarked on a journey to empower all parents and carers with the essential skills needed to save a child’s life.

 Eight years on, and with thousands of parents and carers trained, Theo and Chanelle invite you to attend one of their truly valuable Little Aid Workshops.

Jess Peters is a  mother of two beautiful boys and a registered paramedic with over 11 years experience in emergency prehospital care. Jess and Theo started their careers together working in the busy inner city of Sydney, attending to life threatening emergencies. Jess has since moved to the sunny Sunshine Coast and has taken Rescueblue with her, teaching throughout southern Queensland. Jess aims to educate her community with the skills needed to save a child’s life. Touch base with Jess and let her and her team empower you today.

Kellie Ingram is a mother to two gorgeous children and a current Intensive Care Paramedic and Extended Care Paramedic. Throughout her career she has worked in the rural and metropolitan settings, while gaining an abundance of knowledge along the way. Kellie lives on the beautiful South Coast of NSW, running regular courses throughout the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Southern Highlands. Kellie’s goal is to empower parents through education and prove that first aid really is easy.

"I just wanted to say Kerri, and the course, were amazing. All of the new mumma’s came away feeling more confident and assured. ⁠
.⁠
In addition to her knowledge, Kerri had amazing energy, was great at involving the little babies and working their many outbursts into funny commentary which really lightened the mood and made the social anxiety of having an unpredictable child in a group situation disappear. ⁠
.⁠
Kerri was flexible, not rushed but comprehensive."⁠
.⁠
Thank you Lauren for your kind words! And thank you, as always, to our amazing trainers for the valuable work you do 🚑💙👶🏻 #rescueblue⁠

WHEN SHOULD I INTRODUCE SOLID FOODS TO MY BABY?⁠

"Anytime between the ages of 4-6 months is perfect, depending on when your baby seems like they're ready. Ideally, they would be able to sit supported in a highchair, and they may have shown some interest in the food that you’re eating. ⁠
.⁠
If you’re not sure if they’re ready, it doesn’t hurt at all to just give it a go– choose a day where you’re not too busy or stressed out (if you’ve got older children, then that’s probably never!), sit them in a highchair, and try to feed them a very small amount of thin puree on the end of a soft teaspoon. ⁠
.⁠
It’s very normal for them to push their tongue out so that the food comes out, just simply scoop up the food and try again. They should eventually get the hang and realise that their tongue needs to go the other way in order to swallow! If it’s not working, call it a day and try again in another couple of weeks or so."⁠

Car safety tips part 2! 🚗 #rescueblue⁠
.⁠
SNACK WITH CARE⁠
Be careful when giving your littles one’s snacks to eat in the car while driving. Children must be supervised when eating to avoid choking, so when it’s time to have something to eat, we recommend pulling over somewhere safe so that you can watch your child eat. We do not recommend letting your child eat while you drive as you may miss a complete obstruction. ⁠
.⁠
BEWARE OF PROJECTILES⁠
Beware of projectiles in the car, such as sippy cups or heavier toys. Although they may seem harmless, during a crash these objects can be thrown around a car and have been known to cause serious injury. ⁠
.⁠
ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME FOR TRAVEL. ⁠
When travelling with a baby, you may find you need to stop more often or for longer than planned. Allow yourself lots of time to travel. You may also want to check real-time information on traffic jams road conditions and closures⁠
.⁠
Safe travels! 🚗⁠

It's holiday time again which means a lot of our families are on the road exploring new places. With all this extra time in the car it's important that we are ensuring safe travel with our Little ones. Here are our top tips to ensure car safety this holiday! 🚗 #rescueblue⁠
.⁠
PREPARE THE CAR⁠
Before putting your kids in the car, turn the car on for a few minutes with the air conditioning running first to make sure the car cools down before sitting them in their car seats. ⁠
.⁠
TRAVEL IN THE MORNING⁠
Where possible, travel in the morning when the sun is less hot! Child car seats have been known to get very hot, so dress them in a fewer layers to avoid over heating.⁠
.⁠
AVOID DEHYDRATION⁠
If your baby is still solely on breast and bottle feeds, then it is recommended that you offer extra feeds while travelling to minimise the risk of dehydration. ⁠
.⁠
TAKE BREAKS⁠
Babies are not meant to spend long periods of time in their car seat. During stops, allow your baby to kick, roll or crawl around on a rug on the ground where it is safe for them to do so.⁠
.⁠
Safe travels! 🚗⁠

Traveling with kids tip #2! 🛬 ⁠

DRESS THEM IN BRIGHT, COLOURFUL CLOTHING - ⁠

Traveling with kids? 🛬 Read our tips👇⁠

Losing your child while traveling is every parents worst nightmare. One of the best things you can do to help someone identify your child in the case they get separated from you is have your name and phone number written on their clothing or on their body somewhere. ⁠

Either writing it on their t-shirt, on their forearm using a non-toxic ink, or having a little bracelet made up with your contact details on it will assist in the event that you get separated. There are also a range of wearable tracking devices for children now available on the market!⁠

Can you sleep while your baby sleeps? 😴 Some tips for when you're struggling to:⁠
1. Lie down, even if you can't sleep.⁠
2. Stay away from screens - the harsh light can be very stimulating and keep you up (yes, your phone too).⁠
3. Keep baby close to you can nurse more easily (and without so much disturbance).⁠

Watch out for RSV! ⚠️⁠
.⁠
RSV (Respiratory syncytial virus) is an extremely common childhood virus that causes infection in the lungs and airways of the lower respiratory system. In fact, it is so common that nearly all children by the age of 2 will have been infected with the virus at some point.⁠
.⁠
RSV Symptoms in a newborn that should never be ignored: ⁠
.⁠
🚑⁠ Retractions - very fast breathing (resulting in excessive muscle use of the chest or indents in-between their rib cage between breaths⁠).⁠
🚑⁠ Nostrils flaring in and out ⁠
🚑⁠ Fewer wet diapers than usual ⁠
🚑⁠ Blue tinge around the lips or fingernails ⁠
🚑⁠ Poor feeding due to nasal congestion⁠
.⁠
In older children is usually presents with mild to moderate cold-like symptoms such as fever, runny nose and cough resulting from the production of excessive mucous in the airways. ⁠
.⁠
However, in newborns production of excessive mucous can overwhelm and clog the tiny passages of their lower airways making breathing extremely difficult.⁠
.⁠
Babies under the age of 6-month-old have a much higher chance of requiring hospitalisation when they contract RSV so it's important for parents to seek medical treatment for their babies if they notice any of the above symptoms in babies under 6 months old⁠!⁠
.⁠
Try and always encourage hand hygiene for others handling your baby so that the risk of spreading RSV is reduced. 👶🏻🚑💙 #rescueblue⁠

• GAGGING • The thought of a baby gagging on food terrifies most parents. Did you know that gagging is a measure the body uses to protect the airway from foreign bodies? The gag reflex is an extremely good thing!
The gag reflex causes the muscles within the throat to spasm in an attempt to expel foreign objects away from the airway and hopefully out of the mouth. Clever huh? 🎥 ~ Thanks for the #reelsvideo @elishafiorentino wifey and mama of @life_of_leo_f and founder of @socialmamacommunity @boostsocialteam @jess_rescueblue @rescueblue_littleaid 💙👶🏻🚑
