    1. Shout and Tap Shout and gently tap the child on the shoulder. If there is no response and not breathing or not breathing normally, position the infant on his or her back and begin CPR.

    2. Give 30 Compressions
    Give 30 gentle chest compressions at the rate of at least 100 per minute. Use two or three fingers in the center of the chest just below the nipples. Press down approximately one-third the depth of the chest (about 1 and a half inches).

    3. Open The Airway
    Open the airway using a head tilt lifting of chin. Do not tilt the head too far back

    4. Give 2 Gentle Breaths
    If the baby is not breathing or not breathing normally, cover the baby's mouth and nose with your mouth and give 2 gentle breaths. Each breath should be 1 second long. You should see the baby's chest rise with each breath.

    5- CONTINUE WITH 30 PUMPS AND 2 BREATHS UNTIL HELP ARRIVES

    Is it not recommended to always start with 5 mouth to mouth on children? Before compression..
    Because its more likely the child has put something in the mouth and thats the reason for not breathing...
