Found my 17 month old laying on the floor a few days ago. Picked him up & he was purple & limp. Called 911. He starting coming to about 6-7 mintutes later. Scariest moment of my life! Has anyone ever experiece something like this? I still have no answers as to why this has happened..:(

My cousin has 2 girls the older one started screaming one night. The ran into the room the youngest one wasn't breathing. Very scary. On the other hand my son was playing with another rely at our house he's only 18 months old. he was running tripped and hit his head. Before he cried he held his breath and too went purple. Some kids tend to hold their breath particularly when they're scared or get hurt. Don't know if that's what has happened in your case. What ever it is I'd keep on the doctors back until your completely confident that there is nothing seriously wrong. Very scary.

Holy crap, that must have been terrifying! Poor you -- what a thing to go through! Are they sending him for any sort of testing???

Oh my gosh. Sounds really scary. They don't know WHY? They don't know if he had a seizure? Maybe he was holding his breath and passed out? Sometimes kids do that. Just throwing some suggestions out there. I hope you find out.
