He was NOT breathing...I panic I try to look down his throat and see if I had idk grab whatever it is that he's choking on,then he starts puking,or at least trying...he then pukes out a freaking quarter!!!!!! Omg I didn't know what to do I held him and cryed for a good 5min. I hate the feeling of not knowing what to do!!!!

Awww I'm so sorry mama I'm afraid of that myself. My little one isn't mobile yet so I'm okay with that for now at least he is okay now.

 I know that's scary and you didn't know what to do! I'm totally Not bashing you but trying to educate you  because I am a nurse if that ever happens again Never do a blind finger sweep you can push whatever it is father down! Instead if you can't see what it is in his mouth to try to get it out safely, pick him up turn him over so his belly is on your forearm, chin/head down in your hand and give him a good slap downwards on his back with the PALM of your hand (toward his head) this is the same as giving the heimlich to an adult it will knock loose whatever is there hopefully Then look and see if you can see what it is again IF you can see it you can try to get it out of his mouth. So glad your son is okay I Know that is so traumatizing to you and your baby...believe me I've been there...hug him extra close momma!

oh scary. we live with FIL, he was a paramedic for 10 years. i take my cues from him. if he is worried about the baby then i am. if he thinks its time to help tristan clear his throat, then its time. i should really look into fist aid too...

 Also when you are doing the back slap with them on their stomach you need to pinch their cheeks so their mouth is open, and they need to be at a 45 degree angle with thier head closest to the floor.
