Lay baby face down along your arm or lap. Give five sharp back blows between baby’s shoulder blades. Check after each blow if baby is breathing.
If baby is still not breathing, lay baby on her back. Give five chest pushes.
Look in baby’s mouth. If airway is still blocked and baby is still not breathing, repeat the back blows and the chest pushes.
Continue the five back blows, five chest pushes and breath checks until blockage moves or medical help arrives.
If baby becomes unconscious at any time, start child CPR.
