The danger signs of true choking are:
1. DO NOT perform these steps if the infant is coughing forcefully or has a strong cry – either of which can dislodge the object on its own.
2. Lay the infant face down, along your forearm. Use your thigh or lap for support. Hold the infant’s chest in your hand and jaw with your fingers. Point the infant’s head downward, lower than the body.
3. Give up to 5 quick, forceful blows between the infant’s shoulder blades. Use the heel of your free hand.
