I had a scary mom moment today. I called 9-1-1. Kaylie was sitting in the Bumbo chair and all of the sudden began choking on A LOT of mucous/milk coming out of her nose and mouth. She has done this before but not nearly what I was seeing. Her eyes were popping out of her head and she couldn't get a breath. I was scared. I picked her up and tried to get her to stop the whole while thinking do I pat her on the back? Do I put her on my lap? I didn't know. I grabbed the nasal aspirator and used that while I was on the phone with 9-1-1. Soon the police and EMTs arrived. Kaylie is fine. She was smiling by the time they got there. I felt stupid for calling.
I may have jumped the gun with calling 9-1-1 but I needed someone to guide me if she stopped breathing. I now know that in these situations I panic. Not something I'm proud of. So I am signing up for an infant CPR course right away!
I think by being in the Bumbo all hunched over, the spit up had nowhere else to go so it went out her mouth and nose. But I have never seen so much in my life! I thank God she is okay.
