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.
The best way to avoid this is to make sure that small objects like these are kept out of your child’s reach.
No matter how careful you are, your child may choke on something. In most cases, you or someone else will see your child swallow the object that causes choking.
There can be other reasons why your child starts coughing. But if your child suddenly starts coughing, isn’t ill and has a habit of putting small objects in their mouth, there’s a good chance that they’re choking.
