Does anyone have a baby that gets red in the face?

My baby is 12 weeks old, and every once in awhile when he is scared i think he gets really red in the face, holds his breath, and moves arms, like he is getting really tense, its not constipation issues........

  • I have a rosy cheeked baby girl and when she gets upset, she turns as red as a lobster. When she gets like that I can only think of the B-52 song "Rock Lobster"
