Ive got a 3 month old who is a breath holder. He has had terrible (scary stuff) He has spells in which he turns completly purple when he is upset. my husband was a breath holder as a kid and so was his sister. I was hoping that teaching him ASL would help him out with this. He has other problems related to high bloodpressure so it is very important to keep him calm at all times. Have any of the caffe moms out there used sign language with their infants (before 6 months) and do you think it could help my little boy have less spells and frustration even though he cant sign back yet?Answer Question
How would baby signs help at 3 months??? Usually when people talk about 'breath holder' they mean children that do it to get their way. That would be a toddler. A 3 month old does not have the cognitive (brain) development to manipulate.
You need to get your baby to the doctor right away. I suggest taking the baby to the ER of a major children's hospital. Your baby may have a heart problem, sleep apnea, or some other problem that could be deadly. Don't ignore your baby turning blue again! If your baby turns blue call 911.

People, this is a 3 month old baby that is turning blue! This baby needs evaluated and not taught signs. Breath holding spells are almost always in toddlers and young children and not before 6 months.
