Baby breathing: Babies breath fast. A respiratory rate of 60 breaths a minute is normal. That's 1 breath every second! If the baby has not been in yet for his first post-hospital check-up, then he needs to be seen today. If he had his check up and all was fine at that visit, you need to relax. If poor feeding, then back to doctor. ...Read more

Don't worry: Assuming he is otherwise healthy (not having a cold or cough or bronchiolitis) then don't worry about it. He is probably just going in and out of a deep sleep. When he breathes quickly he is probably waking up very briefly. We all have very brief awakenings especially during rem sleep. ...Read more

Are breath-holding spells concerning? It happenend to my 16 months son twice, once because he was afraid, & once after crying for sth he wanted

Are breath-holding spells concerning? It happenend to my 16 months son twice, once because he was afraid, & once after crying for sth he wanted

Not necessarily: This is a simple amplification of crying/fitting that often escalates if you pay a lot of attention to it. Once a kid knows it will grab your complete attention they may use it often.Although it often happens when they don't get their way, it can happen if they drop something & are frustrated.Avoid direct eye contact during events & monitor with peripheral vision. You can keep them safe that way. ...Read more
