Mother sells clever baby onesie after having to revive her choking infant daughter in near-fatal incident

Stevie Skene shares how she suffered every parent’s worst nightmare when her eight-month-old daughter choked on a faulty part of a baby walker.

The Sydney mother thankfully knew how to perform CPR and was able to dislodge the object, and after ‘what felt like forever’, revive her.

The near-fatal incident three years ago gave her a deep desire to help other parents understand the basics of resuscitation.

‘We found someone in the UK who had created these CPR onesies for babies and I really wanted to bring them to Australia,’ she told FEMAIL.

The onesies, which she now sells on her website Homies & Co, provide succinct instructions on how to administer CPR to your child – and it’s helpfully written inside the clothes.

The words encourage parents to firstly ‘call an ambulance’, before giving five puffs over the nose and mouth, 30 hard pumps to the centre of the chest using two fingers, and then alternating between two puffs and 30 pumps.

‘We hope our onesies can provide piece of mind and education for parents as well as comfortability for babies,’ she said.

‘It’s not only something that can be at your fingertips in an emergency situation but something that parents can read and be reminded of every time they’re dressing their baby.’

When Mrs Skene posted about the product in a Facebook group it immediately attracted a positive reaction.

‘If it even helps one parent my job would be done. We hope in the future to take money from each sale to donate to a charity helping women with post-natal depression as well,’ Mrs Skene added.

Customers can purchase the onesies in a three pack for $35 or a five pack for $50 HERE.

What an awesome idea!

  • I agree with comment below. Idea fantastic, but no good having it on the inside as you have to undress the child to find them so may not realise they are there.


  • Good idea but it’s on the inside of clothing which may be difficult to see.


  • Such a cool onesie and a really great idea love a multipurpose item


  • What a clever design !


  • Should be printed on adult clothing too. So many people don’t know CPR


  • I think this is a good idea the more we see it the more familiar we become.


  • It’s a good thing to know but I’m not sure the inside of clothes is good.


  • A good idea, but it would be better to have a CPR/emergency chart on your fridge, together with important numbers like Poisons Information, doctor etc.

    • Also; on keyring, purse, handbag and car. I have laminated cards and they are so easy to store and use if needed.


  • Such a clever idea. Not everyone has had cpr training


  • I have a laminated CPR card attached to my keyring and in my purse too. Easy to access and refer to if needed.


  • Seems like a good idea – certainly can’t hurt.


  • I don’t quite get it? So is it just a reminder each time you dress the child? It’s on the inside of the onesie, the last thing I would be thinking of if my child is choking would be hang on, I need to take the onesie off to know what to do. I also thought they moved away from the mouth to mouth resus and focused only on compressions now?


  • It’s a very smart idea and good for people like me who don’t know how to perform CPR unfortunately


  • What a brilliant idea. Such a great gift idea for new parents. I have a great great niece due soon, I’m googling these!


  • Great idea there would be lots of people needing refreshers on baby cpr.
