My nephew was born august 15, 2001 the day i turned 18.....i had no plans so i went with my mom to meet him for the first time. My big brother had gotten into trouble and that kept him from his son. Jaylen looked just like my brother. When my brothers gf came home so did my nephew.
He was only a few weeks old and they were propping his bottle. He choked and was turning colors my mom and her friend had to do cpr on my nephew to clear his air way. It happend twice, my nephew is now 7 years old and imo the sweetest little boy ever.
The second story involves my daughter braelyn and me.
I want to clarify before i start that i almost never propped her bottle due to what happend to my nephew and always kept an eye on her while she was eating.
Feb 12, 2010 4pm i'd just finished feeding brae and went to lay down with her to take a nap before i went out with my cousin my mom was going to babysit and we'd made plans to go to the casino.
I got up at 5 and started to get ready. I was in the bathroom and i heard a noise. I stepped out and asked my mom what the noise was she said she didn't know and suggested i go check on my daughter who was laying in the bassinet. I go in and look at her she's turning bright red. I picked her up and her eyes opend and started bulging out of ger head!
i yelled for my mom and handed her brae. By the time my mom started cpr she was gray. She yelled at me to call 911 i screamed at her that i didn't know the number.
By the time i called paramedics and they got there my mom had her breathing and crying. We spent the night in the hospital and they said it was acid reflux. I barely slept while she slept in the hospital crib beside me.
She is now a healthy 3 year old with big blue eyes.
Please do not prop your baby's bottles.
