My 2 month old stops breathing at night. **UPDATE**
I have a two month old DD. When she was born and still in the hospital my DH went over to pick her up out of the bassinet and noticed she wasn't breathing. She was thrashing around and trying to breath so he quick picked her up and she started breathing again. This happened a couple more times since then but not for awhile. Last night she was sleeping in my arms and I woke up to her thrashing around with her eyes wide open. I sat up with her and patted her on the back and after a few seconds she took in a huge breath of air and started crying. Then she stopped breathing a couple more times as I was holding her and she was crying a little.
I am waiting for a call back from the doctor. Do you think it could be apnea? I'm terrified of SIDS! It was a good thing I was holding her last night!
The doctor called back and said that as long as she doesn't go for 20 seconds without breathing then it can be normal and just due to "floppy airway". If it was for at least 20 seconds then it could be apnea. I am not so sure about this. If she was not in my arms I would not have heard her and would not have sat her up and got her breathing again. What do you think? Do you like the doctors explanation? I don't.
