I don't know what heevies are, but if his lips are turning blue from lack of oxygen, I don't see how catnip tea could help.  Maybe you need a different doc.

Sounds like apnea, and catnip tea won't help. I'd gind a better doctor.

It's called sleep apnea.

I would really recommend finding a better doctor rather than trying to treat this issue yourself.

ETA: What's the sleeping arrangement? Babies who sleep close to their mothers show better breathing patterns than those who are kept in another room. I don't remember the exact explanation, but I believe it was something to do with babies regulating their own breathing based on the mother's.
