Why we made The Pen That Lost His Lid

We developed The Chokeables campaign after parents told us that babies choking was the first aid skill they were most worried about.

We surveyed over 4,000 parents and found that 40% of them had seen their baby choke. And of those who said they knew the right first aid technique to help them, nearly three-quarters of parents (71%) selected the wrong answer.

This new e-book is the next chapter in our life saving campaign. With your help, we hope that The Pen That Lost His Lid will save even more young lives.
