My baby girl is sick. She has been since Monday. She is super congested, coughing, and has discharge from her eyes and nose. Yuck! She has been to the doctor twice and has looked okay, She has a mild fever and one ear started to look a bit pink so we have started her on antibiotics (she HATES taking meds by the way, and I mean, HATES.) Last night I was feeding her and towards the end she started coughing (which she always does now that she is sick) but this time, she wouldn't stop. She ended up not being able to catch her breath, and couldn't breathe. Her lips started turning blue and her eyes looked so urgent, it was horrible. Thank God I know how to do the heimlich on a baby (praise God for my EMT training) and so I did that. She spit milk, drool, and some phlegm out of her mouth and started breathing again. I swear to God that was the scariest moment in my entire life. All I could think is how differently that could have gone. Afterwards she was pretty sedate but clingy, which was fine because you couldn't have paid me to put her down. I don't want to have to do that EVER AGAIN. But I'm glad that I know I could. So let it be a lesson to you; if you don't know how to do infant heimlich or cpr, learn it!!! You never know when you'll need it.
