Petting my back (coughing) -Idiomatic?


Senior Member
Hello Everyone!

How do you say this in English?

If you're feeding your baby, and you have forgotten that one of the foods is spicy and you feed your baby some. So your baby starts coughing so you "pet her back" (while the baby is coughing).

Is that what you would say?

Is there a better way than "pet"??

Thank you very much!
