hi mommys...my son turning 9 months today is sometimes holding his breath while crying (makes him blue)...im afraid that this is some kind of an illness or a just his way when he wants someone to pick him up or wants attention..

My daughter does it sometimes to i just blow in her face and it makes her take a breath

Hi my brother used to do that many years ago, my grandfather told my mum when he is holding his breath to flick water in his face he will soon stop.

Hope this helps

Trust me, he's not going to hurt himself. He will eventually breathe, he doesn't have much of a choice in the matter. Just don't act surprised and continue doing what you need to do (diaper change, etc) while he's pitching his fit. It may take a few days but your lack of response to this will discourage future blues.
