What to Do if an Infant or Toddler Is Choking

All Posts No Comments

The other day my four-year-old was choking on some orange slices for about 2 seconds, but those were a terrifying 2 seconds. So I decided to banish my fears through knowledge, and refreshed my memory on CPR for little guys. The below video is about 8 minutes, but it’s really good. (You also have to sit through a short commercial in the beginning.) Even if you’ve read up on how to do these techniques, it’s good to see this guy do them on the mannequins, to get an idea of how hard you’re supposed to smack their back, or thrust upward in a Heimlich, etc.
