Humans choke when they cannot breathe because food or another object is blocking the airway. Babies are prone to choking because they like to put things in their mouths. Babies also lack teeth to properly chew something up before swallowing. Most babies who choke do so on small items such as buttons, coins, or watch batteries. A completely blocked airway will cause an infant to not be able to make sounds or breathe, and a partially blocked airway makes it difficult to breathe. A partially blocked airway can quickly become a completely blocked airway and cause death.
