If you find yourself in a situation where a baby is choking, the most important thing is to remain calm (Easier said than done!).
Choking in babies and children can be caused by a number of everyday items found in your home like food, pen lids, buttons, food wrappers and in rare cases, jewellery. It’s always the random objects that can cause problems!
First Aid For You has created some steps for you to follow should you be faced with someone who is choking. It is important to remember that CPR techniques for babies differ to that for a child over 12 months.
