So we are doing BLS with DD3 (almost 8 mo), we also did it with DD2 but for some reason I'm still scared she might choke. I never did a CPR course (always seemed to have an excuse ) And now it's even harder for me as I have 3 kids at home and no help. The other day my friend was feeding her son, same age as DD3 and it's her first! she gave her bread for him to munch on and she was more relaxed than me!
Am I paranoid to feel this way? I know I have to let the baby figure the way to bite and then swallow but I have to admit my heart jumps every time she gags! And I've only given her soft foods (avocado, sweet potato, lentils...) I would like to give her meats but I'm scared!
Any advice or words of encouragement will help me cope with this.
Thanks in advance!
