Bad news - It was on my daughter and I am a little traumatized right now.

Parenthood - NOT for the faint of heart.

ETA - I should clarify that this was my first HM ever, and it was thankfully a success.

I should have put it in parentheses. Won't bother the mods with that one, though.

We were having breakfast for dinner, and the bacon was a little too soft. I personally like mine crumbly bordering on burnt, but everyone else here likes it chewy so I catered to that tonight.

She crammed a whole piece in her mouth. We had our neighbor over for dinner, and DD was goofing off and inhaled it. Then started to panic and try to breathe and it blocked her airway. I don't remember leaping from my side of the table to hers and yanking her out of her seat.. but I do remember wondering whether I should be giving her adult Heimlich or flipping her over on my arm for one millisecond. Common sense yelled "She's fucking FOUR!! Get under her ribcage NOW!!"

And the rest is history. I'm so grateful for First Aid/CPR training, and the movie Groundhog Day.

That happened with my dad and a steak a few years back when I was visiting him down in the Keys. We were at a really quaint little island bar and restaurant. We'd had a few drinks and we're laughing, then all of a sudden, he wasn't. He turned blue! Scariest figgin' moment of my life! Luckily his friend, who was sitting next to him, noticed and jumped up and gave him the HM. So glad your little girl is ok! How scary for you!

When DS22 was about a year old, he choked on a leaf. (Dont ask) I did back blows on him and got the leaf out.

The next time I had to do CPR class at work, everyone else would grab the little baby dummy and very gently pat it's back. I grabbed that sucker and beat the hell out of it.

This instructor looked at me and said, "Youve done this in real life, haven't you?"

I'm literally pacing around the house trying to release the stress.

In the moment, I was almost out of body like "This isn't happening. This isn't really happening."

When her face started to go from red to purple and I could actually hear her gasping the bacon in, I'm so fricken happy that my impulse to remain calm and do what I needed to do overrode everything else.

I am super high anxiety, but if there's a fire or someone's in danger or hurt my body goes into action mode. So grateful.

Oh my god!! Jrazz.. I read your first post and thought.."Oh I had to do that once! When dd got a piece of soft bacon stuck in her throat."

She was about 4.

I'm glad Vrazz is ok! Also you should know, you will not be thanked for your heroics. However, you will hear several times years from now "Remember that time you didn't cook the bacon well enough and I almost died?"

Why don't 4 year olds chew bacon!!!???

ETA) I didn't do the heimlich though.. I reached in her throat and grabbed it. Good job remembering your training!!

Great Job!!! Was Vrazz flipped out about it?

I can remember choking (frequently) as a kid, and My dad would yank me up and smack my back, and flip me upside down. For me it was no biggie, but my mom was always really cranky after. Of course I was such a spazz, I didn't get why.

My DD followed those footsteps, and I don't care how many people you do the it on, or how many times you teach it, it is WAAAAYYYY different when it's your own kid.

Vrazz was flipped out for about 10 minutes. Then she was quiet for about half an hour. (Put on her favorite movie and we all (including neighbor) sat around petting her hair and telling her jokes and playing with her dolls. She was her usual self in no time, she's so amazing.

I will definitely be hearing about the time I "roughed her up" for not chewing bacon for the rest of my life.

I think it's time the rest of the family starts eating bacon cooked right! (you & I share the preference for crispy bacon )

Holy crap, your story made my adrenaline pump just reading it. How incredibly scary!! When my kids were small...hell, even now...I was very anxious about them choking ("...to death" is the unspoken part). Probably influenced by witnessing a friend go blue in the cafeteria in college. Laughing and eating, bad combination.

You DID IT!! You knew what you needed to do, you were trained, and you swung into action. You'll likely have some post-traumatic stress but given time it will settle down. Great job, Mama!

I know the feeling Razzie. Been there, done that. Its scary.

MIL gave my DD a pizza crust at around 12 months old. (I was in the other room) DD drooled and sucked that thing till it was all soggy and slippery. Slid right down her throat. She couldn't breathe. Started choking and gagging. Panic ensued in the kitchen, I went running. MIL is spazzing out (Dear God woman, you had 6 kids yourself. Get a grip.) I grabbed DD, flipped her over, and did the back blow thing. Pizza crust went flying across the room.

I felt the panic, but also the common sense/get the job done thing.

Glad y'all are ok.

Been close to that point myself a couple times...my sons is, and always has been a chipmunk-mouth-stuffer with food. Pizza, cake, whatever. He will just cram his mouth with food before he chews and swallows, and there has been more than a few times a had to give him a well-placed *thump* on the back to loosen some of that stuff up. He's gotten better, but he still crammed an entire large piece of chocolate brownie in his mouth a few months ago.

OMG with V we have always had to tell her "Do the chew!!" She hears it once a day at least.

In fairness, I'm not a terribly effective chewer myself(much too busy for that) but she always made me crazy with her one-chew-and-swallow antics.

To this day I cut her apples and carrots paper thin. I still chop up chicken nuggets as well. I just didn't think that bacon would betray me like this. Now that V is better, I'm just left with some simmering resentment at my most beloved of all pork products.

Yeah, with my son we tell him to "eat like a gentleman". It's part of a bigger package that includes napkins on laps, etc.

Eh. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm not a mouth stuffer per se, but I sometimes eat too quickly, especially if it's something that doesn't require cutting, like pasta or pizza.

Maybe I'm unique here, but I am a bacon non-disciminator. I will eat it crunchy, I will eat it chewy, I will it it in bits, bowls, or weaves (Yes, they exist. My brother made a bacon weave. And yes, it DOES looks like a tiny blanket.)

So glad you went into rescue mode and succeeded! It's only in the aftermath that you realize what could have resulted and fall apart! Lol

When my youngest (a DS) was about that age, at a small neighborhood market co-owned by an older couple who were grandparents, the grandmother gave all 3 kids hard candies. Luckily, I made them stay next to me if they chose to open theirs. As she rang up my purchases , DS started to choke on his. She totally panicked, while I, like HFSSC and others, calmly flipped him over and whacked his back, dislodging the candy which flew across the floor. He was startled, but ok and just wanted replacement candy because his sibs had some.

She was so shaken and felt to blame, she offered him anything he wanted and tried to give me things. Heck, I think I could have been the new store owner!! I have no idea how her own 7 children and the grandchildren who ran around the store ever survived!

Another crispy bacon eater here. Can't stomach the feel of it if not "done". Now I have a better argument in favor of it!

WTF is it with soggy chewy bacon??? How can anyone eat it that way... Bacon is required to be crisp and crunchy... Of course, me, brilliant as I am, inhales at the wrong time and chokes/coughs on the dry bacon dust... but whatever!!!

Glad you and baby Razz are ok.

Holy Shit, lady! Job well done! Yet another example of why taking CPR/1st Aid classes is a damned good idea.

Shamefully for me, I''ve actually had to give MYSELF the Heimlich. First time, I was eating with a friend, started to choke, idiot me, walked to the bathroom steps away because I was embarrassed, got in there, training raised it''s head and I thought, this is how people die in restaurants. Hurled myself, diaphragm first, into the corner of a sink, dislodging the food as my friend walked in behind me, thinking that I looked strange. STUPID! 2nd time was about 15 years later eating a dinner in my hotel room alone, food stuck, almost broke a rib on the side of the sink. Oy!

The one time I did do it on someone else, it was a little kid at Disneyland. We were eating in a big food court area, I could see him starting to choke, and his mother was telling him to be quiet, and don''t disturb people. I was about 19? I went over two tables, grabbed him, did the maneuver, mom hit me and started screaming for Security WHILE she was hitting me, the hot dog popped out of the kids mouth, and he started crying. I was so embarrassed that I left at high speed.

And for those of you who don''t know how, here''s a short video on the Hind Lick Maneuver.

That is the scariest moment, when you realize someone is legit choking. My son did that same thing on an onion ring when he was about 9.

I remember that funny look on his face. Just as I was about to fly out of my seat over to him and administer the HM, he reached way back into his throat and pulled he offending string of onion out.

Very scary. I'm so glad that you knew how do this and that vrazz is ok.

I get that v is in top form. how are you?

great, great job!

vrazz may hassle you about this, but i expect she'll eventually know you saved her life, and once she's through adolescence, she'll be very happy you did.

I hope this is the last time your cpr skills are called on.

I'm in motion, sisoon.

Processed a bit - had a lot going on this week. I guess I'm avoiding saying I'm trying not to think about it too much. I told my mom, which is big because she is NOT someone I usually go to for emotional support.

Hmm, I broke down sobbing watching Frozen with V this morning... during "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" I think I got my tears out, in a misplaced manner but now they're out.

Thanks for asking.

Glad things are calming down...

...I ate 5 pieces of floppy-as-hell bacon this morning and spelled out a letter of Jrazz's name after each one.

J-*munch*-R-*munch*....and so on and so forth.

It was the only exciting part of my morning, sadly enough.

That movie is like that. Let It Go used to get me every time, before "every time" became every 45 seconds in the radio.

There was a five year old singing "Let it Go" behind me in the grocery check out line this morning. It was a really long line, too.

A Really REALLY long.

Alright Sasscendant. Bring a snorkel to the G2G, cause there's only one life jacket.
