Unconscious and breathing children/babies: the recovery position
If the child / baby is breathing then you need to protect their airway by placing them in the recovery position.
The recovery position involves rolling the casualty onto their side with their head tilted back. By doing this, the tongue is kept clear of the airway and any vomit is able to drain and not obstruct the child or baby's airway.
For children, the recovery position technique is the same as for adults. See our basic online first aid course for how to place someone into the recovery position
Babies / infants
Hold the baby on their side with the head tilted downwards. Ensure you have fully supported the head.
