Choking: First aid
Cribs themselves do not cause SIDS. But features of the Myth: Babies who sleep on their backs will choke if they spit up or vomit during sleep. Fact: Babies.what with for how
But features of the sleep environment—such as a soft sleep surface—can increase the risk of SIDS and other sleep-related causes of infant death. Studies show no increase in the number of deaths from choking among babies who sleep on their backs. All babies should see their health care providers regularly for well-baby checkups and should get their shots on time as recommended by their health care provider. Most SIDS deaths occur when babies are between 1 month and 4 months of age. SIDS is not a health concern for babies older than 1 year of age. Sleeping with a baby in an adult bed increases the risk of suffocation and other sleep-related causes of infant death.

Will Baby Choke if He/She Vomits While Sleeping on the Back?
Choking occurs when something is stuck in the throat, blocking the airway to the lungs. This blockage can be partial or complete. The airway is the path air travels down to get to the lungs. Most choking episodes, such as those caused by liquids, clear without a need for assistance. When the airway is blocked, this is called foreign body airway obstruction. A mild choking episode may cause your child to cough, gag or vomit.
Back to Your pregnancy and baby guide. Children, particularly those aged from 1 to 5, often put objects in their mouth. This is a normal part of how they explore the world. Some small objects, such as marbles, beads and button batteries, are just the right size to get stuck in a child's airway and cause choking. In most cases, you or someone else will see your child swallow the object that causes choking.
