Just ignore it. When you hold your breath, the worst that can happen is temporarily passing out (and it rarely reaches that level for a child). When you pass out, your body automatically starts breathing again, and you wake up. (Obviously you should make sure there's nothing dangerous in the way if he falls.) If you want to try something just for the sake of trying something, try tickling.
It's so weird that you bring this up ... I saw an Andy Griffith episode a couple of weeks ago for the first time in yeeears, and that was in it! One of Opie's so-called "friends" (bad boys) was doing this, so Opie tried it, too. Andy ignored him. It was hilarious.
Kids will try anything to test you or ruffle your feathers. As long as you stay calm, they'll realize it doesn't work.
I can't ignore it. We went to the doctor and they are thinking he is having some sort of reflex seizure. He is now not just passing out, but his body goes stiff and when he comes to, he is very very lethargic. Time for the testing now.
my dd started having spells at like 2 wks old her last spell she had she was 4 . She would have atleast 10 a day til she was 18 mths old and after that she would have them in clusters and after she would pass out she wouldnt start breathing again we had to give her a breath it was very scary . hers were like R.A.S. the only differance is she wouldnt start breathing on her own . Drs last time I checked didnt reconize ras as a condition. I did some research years and came across this- Home - STARS - Syncope Trust And Reflex anoxic Seizures, information and support ... check this site out and I hope this helps !
