My son is about a year and a half now, and he's a pretty good baby. But when he gets mad, he likes to scream his head off then he holds his breath until he passes out. It scares me so bad, but I know that when he passes out he'll start breathing again on his own. He does it alot though, so I'm scared that it could cause him brain damage. My mom has told me that when he does that I need to throw a glass of ice cold (without the actual ice) into his face and he'll stop. I've done it alot but he just keeps doing it. I'm getting so frustrated with him over it, so please, any advice would be appreciated.
