1. Place your mouth over the victim's mouth AND NOSE to create a tight seal.

2. Blow into the infant's nose and mouth over 1 second, with just enough volume and force to cause the chest to rise with each breath.

3. Be careful not to ventilate too forcefully, as doing so may cause lung damage.

Many responders as well as good Samaritan citizens are unaware that when performing CPR on children 8 years old and under it is possible to damage the lungs when too much pressure is used while filling the lungs with air. The link to this postings full story touches on this fact that is a very important tip for all who step up to save a life. 

Only enough pressure is needed to cause the chest to rise slightly. It is the Oxygen that is needed, not the amount of pressure used to fill the lungs. They only hold a finite amount, and even in the event of a drowned victim it is only necessary to fill the lungs with air gently to remove the fluid in them.

Knowing is half the battle ! 

Thank you all for what you are willing to do for others.
