ello? I have a six month old daughter. Two days ago, while sitting up right in a seat,she she dropped her head and started vomiting. She vomiting a lot! My husband did not notice anything out of the ordinary prior to vomiting but he also admitted that he might not have been paying that close attention. After vomiting I put her in the bath, and while in the bath she kept falling asleep. I took her out of the bath and began to dry her and stimulate her and she continued to fall asleep. I could not get her to stay awake. She would open her eyes and close them right back. She was flaacid, no facial expression, and it was almost like she was not there. About 10 mins passed by of trying to stimulate her, her eyes looked toward the right and began a rhythmic jumping (it looked like horizontal nystagmus). During that time I could not get her to look at me. About five mins later, she was wide awake looking and observing and 5 mins from that she was back to herself bouncing playful self again. Did my baby have a seizure? Also last night, over the baby monitor I heard her breathing weird, it was like a panting (almost sounded like a small dog barking really fast). I went in to check on her. It wasn't continuous but it had a rhythm to it...she would do 4-5 "barks" then breathe normal for a few seconds and so on. What do you guys think...I called her doctor but they didn't seem too concerned.
