  • Hes holding his breath probably because hes angry or just upset. Lots of kids do that. The passing out is common but their bodies will kick in after they pass out. My niece was notorious for pitching a fit and while crying she would hold her breath and pass out. They would throw cold water on her and she would come to very quickly. As long as there is no medical problems, then its just a control issue. They usually outgrow it. I think the ER is a bit much, especially if the dr has already told you what hes doing. The passing out part is just scary. Good luck.

  • I did it when I was a baby. Most can hold their breath till they pass out. Once they pass out all goes back to normal.
