Oh boy, parenting/baby talk! Which is either boring because you don’t have kids, or boring because you do have kids and spend all day talking like this.
Yesterday, my 1 year old nephew was angry and yelling at his parents, normal normal, when suddenly he went limp like all his strings had been cut and turned blue and fell over. He woke up again in a few seconds, but was still a little blue, and needless to say the whole thing was terrifying for the observers. They called the doctor’s office and came in for an emergency visit, and he was diagnosed with “breath holding spells”.
Apparently, some small children when they get very very angry forget to breath. And then they turn blue and faint, and then they wake up and are fine. It’s supposed to last for about another two years and just be a part of their life that his poor parents will have to get used to.
Had anyone else seen this? Is this really a thing or was the doctor just making it up? If you have seen it, any tips?
