If your toddler is coughing to get some food out, should you encourage them to look up or down to make it safer/easier to get the food out?

There is no right way to look. As long as your child is coughing then just keep encouraging them to cough smile.gif

If this is something that happens on a regular basis then I'd maybe try cutting the food smaller and taking a first aid course so you feel more comfortable smile.gif
