Everything in "the books" and nursing school will tell ya to do what Catherine said, but the insinct is usually to just get it out.

It is so scary. Thankfully of my three kids only once had I dealt with this: Last week, banana was the culprit w/ Bailey. You can't scoop that out with a finger.

I remember when I was nannying, the youngest was about 16-18 mos at the time and snagged an apple out of her sisters bookbag while she and I were going over her homework. She was under the table (I had no idea there was an apple in the bag) and started gagging on the skin, then the coughing stopped and her faced just got redder, I reached in there, holding her on that same angle and got it out. I don't think I had ever been more afraid to tell a mom something.
