My 9 month old cries and sometimes just stops breathing, like he cant catch his breath till He almost turns blue.. :(
It scares me to be anywhere alone. He has done this 3 times. I blow in his face and do everything i can think of when he gets this way but i still cant seem to make him breath. When he finally catches his breath he just feels like he goes limp. and rest his head on me. Its terrifying. Has anones child done this or something like this?

He does that like will cry all in one breath. but when I get him to breath again he doesn't cry or anything. I'm taking him to the doctor to have him checked again for multiple things his dad has really bad ashsma. Maybe it may have something to do with that. Idk but I know standing there watching your baby not breathing because he can't stop crying is frightening.

When my daughter is really, really hurt (bad fall or something similar) she will scream out and keep screaming out in the same breath. It seems like she takes forever to inhale and I've seen lots of babies do this when they are really hurt. However, when she inhales she continues to cry until I calm her. She doesn't go limp or start turning blue. I would check with his doctor just to be on the safe side.
