Would You Know What To Do If Your Child Was Choking? [VIDEO]
One of my biggest fears came true last night as a parent, when our 2 year old daughter began choking on her dinner. It was serious, and it was terrifying. Luckily we were able to clear the obstruction within about 30 seconds, but it was a very frightening experience. Would you know what to do?
In our case, Jane had began coughing while she was eating dinner. She then stopped making any noise and had a wide eyed panicked look. My wife ran over to her and smacked her on the back about 4 or 5 times when fortunately she coughed out the piece of potato she was choking on. But what would we have done if that didn't work? Here's some great videos that I found.
It's also a great idea to take a training class from the American Red Cross.
