She Gave Her Child Something Called “The Big Kiss”, And The Reason Why Will…

Uncategorized

There is nothing more terrifying than the sound of your child choking on something, or realizing they have something stuck in their nose.

Just be assured that you are not alone and definitely won’t be the last parent to face the extraction battle. This little tip might just help save you a trip to ED next time your child decides to stick some foreign object where it shouldn’t go.

In a now-viral video, one mom is showing parents a clever hack to try when (let’s be real, it’s most likely going to happen at one point or another if you have young ones) something gets stuck in your kid’s nostril.

Instead of initially going into panic mode over a potentially obstructed airway, Nikki Jurcutz, who is a paramedic and co-founder of Tiny Hearts Education — a company that offers baby CPR classes and first aid courses for parents — filmed a clip to help other moms and dads on Instagram.

“We used to refer to this as the mother’s kiss but I’ve decided to start referring to it as the Big Kiss as any trusted adult can do this one,” she wrote. “This one is used to dislodge something stuck up the nose of a little one!”

In the clip, which has gotten more than 7,800 likes as of Friday, she shows how to quickly and effortlessly dislodge a pea stuck in her little boy’s nose. According to this experienced mama, you just need to follow these four steps:

  1. Block to unaffected nostril aka the one with nothing stuck up it!
  2. Place your mouth over their mouth and form a seal
  3. Blow until you feel a resistance which causes the closure of the glottis
  4. Give a sharp and short puff of air into the mouth which travels through the nasopharynx and hopefully pushes the cheeky object out

And just like that, within seconds, she blows that pesky pee right on out. However, she does include another important reminder: “This works 60% of the time,” she added. “Although there have been no reported cases, the main danger is aspiration, particularly in a little one who is not cooperative. So if you can it’s suggested to do it under medical supervision.”

According to AWM, many readers applauded the life hack and shared hundreds of comments.

“My little sister did this with a marble when we were kids. My mom and I just freaked out.”

“So handy. Thank you. I feel it’s only a matter of time till my son does this.”

“My niece put a tic-tac up her nose. My mom and sis took her to the doctor because they didn’t know what to do. The Doctor got them to do this. Definitely a good technique to remember!”
