My baby June has done this about 3 or 4 times she starts crying and throw a little fit that she doesn't breath. It is really scary b/c the last time she was in her crip and fell over. I never knew a baby could do that. I thought I wouldn't have to worry until she was old. I have to stop her free throwing a fit b/c I am scared she will quit breathing.

Kyla is absolutely right. Stay strong, this phase will pass eventually once she knows its not going to work on you.

Don't worry, it is an attention-getter. The WORST it can get is she passes out from holding her breath. Then she'll be breathing cause that's how our bodies work...but I don't think it can hurt her any, just make you a little crazy! Maybe check with your pediatrician to make sure. Sounds like you have a strong-willed child on your hands!
