I’m starting something new. I am going to touch upon some of the things in life that people just don’t tell you until it happens to you. THEN everyone says “oh yea I knew that!”
The first one is babies sometimes stop breathing for no reason at all.
I have had this experience with both of my kids and the pediatrician says it happens much more often than you think.
Here is what I have done and it has worked for me, obviously if it doesn’t you call 911 and rush your ass to the ER.
L stopped breathing twice in one week when she was a few months old. The first time it happened I flipped her over put her head down slightly and smashed on her back with my hand. It shocked her so much that she took a deep breath. The same thing happened again and a few weeks ago with J.
It’s not something that anyone tells you until you have the awful experience yourself. I’m hoping that this will stick in your head if god forbid it happens to you.
