He is 16 months old and spent his first 13 months in Mexico and has spent 3 more in Ireland. It started back in September he sort of stopped breathing and ended up in A&E for the night but was told they cant see whats wrong with him...It has been repeating every month since...he is sound sleep and suddenly he makes a whimpering sound like he is going to start crying horribly-while having eyes shut- then starts struggling to breath...at times he opens eyes but his sight looks lost...you call him, shake him, rub him, pat him...nothing would wake him up and he starts getting floppy...we had been adviced (by midwife in Mexico) to give him a flick on the sole of the feet or get off his nappy and dip his bottom in cool water,,,we do get quite concerned...I´ve read lots of websites and found 8 similar post to our situation but no replies to what it could be...he is due in late january for a brainwave scan...None of our families have histories of anything alike...he has two older healthy siblings ...and my husband and I are healthy too...any ideas or similarities? Thank you
