Breath Holding Help!

Hi there, does anyone have any help or tips with toddler breath holding. My 18 month son has started holding his breath untill he actually passes out! thankfully he starts breathing straight away. But any suggestions on prevention and ways to to stop it would be great.


  • Thanks for this. It it nice to know that my son is not the only one out there! The first time it happens is very scary but now i am calm about it - no point in making him more scared by me paniking! He did it in ELC the other day and i got filthy looks from other mums as i had to be really rough with him to get going again. Blue baby and stressed mummy but no one asked if we were ok!
