#thechokeables Choking Baby First Aid – Win a First Aid Kit

August 18, 2015
If your child starting choking would you know what to do?

St John Ambulance, believe that everyone should have the skills and confidence to know what to do in an emergency. Knowing basic first aid can be the difference between life and death – and every week they hear of new people whose lives have been saved because someone nearby knew what to do.

40% of parents asked by St John Ambulance have witnessed their own baby choke and almost four-fifths don’t know what to do in this situation so they have made a short memorable video, The Chokeables – featuring the voices of David Walliams, David Mitchell, Johnny Vegas and Sir John Hurt – that shows people how to help a choking baby.

In The Chokeables, a video launched earlier this year, the celebrities take on the characters of animated objects that could potentially choke babies: a small princess toy, a pen lid, a jelly baby and a peanut. They’ve joined together because they’ve had enough and want to show how easy it is to save a choking baby’s life.

In just 40 seconds you can learn how to give first aid to a choking baby.

    Great post. My hubby had the choking issue when I was away one. Luckily my girly coughed it up and all was ok but every bit of advice can be so useful. Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst and see you soon xx

    Fab post. Oliver was premature and whilst he was in SCBU we were offered a free first aid course which covered lots on choking. I do need to refresh though as in an emergency I am sure I would panic.

      Hi Becky, thanks for your comment. It's great you were offered that. Our twins were premature too, but we weren't offered anything like that x
