The Important Winter Car Seat Safety Rule You're Probably Breaking & Why You Must Stop Now

Take a few moments to view this. It is extremely important to all parents who are going to buckle their infants and children in car seats this upcoming winter.

Winter Coats and Car Seats

This baby has on a thin fleece coat that doesn't interfere with car seat safety. You can place a warm blanket over him.
Ask "Are you choking"?

Choking maneuver for children.

Choking is the fourth leading cause of unintentional death in children under the age of 5.

What are the signs of choking?
  • older child clutches his or her neck  
  • breathing is high pitched
  • coughing has stopped and there is silence
  • cannot talk or make sounds
  • color turns from red to blue especially around the lips
  • cannot breathe  

What should you do? 

  • ask "are you choking"?
  • tell him you're going to help
  • stand or kneel behind the child
  • put your arms under his or her arms
  • put the thumb side of your fist against the childs' belly, just above the belly button
  • place your other hand over your fist


  • press into the abdomen with quick inward and upward thrusts
  • continue until the object comes out and the child is breathing normally or they stop responding, then start CPR  
  •  If you are alone do 2 minutes of CPR and then call 911
  • If someone else is around have them call 911
  • Continue CPR until the child responds or trained help arrives and takes over 

This is the procedure for children over a year old. The choking maneuver is different for infants newborn to 1 year.
