Chris Scott is training to be a 911 operator. His wife, at home with their infant son, found the child choking. She called 911, Scott answered the phone, and calmly talked her through the problem. The boy, Jacob, is again healthy and safe.

I wonder: do those "first-time parent" classes include infant CPR? It would make sense if they did.
At a friend's house their son choked on a bacon sandwich. She didn't know what to do so I got on with it - moments later our son choked on the other end of the same sandwich and I had to invert and thump him, too.
Cursed bacon - who trusts it?
Also, I think EVERYBODY should know how to perform CPR.
I think parents should definitely learn how to give CPR, safety first. wouldn't hurt to know.
