My baby woke up this morning about 6:00 am as usual, as I was changing his diaper he started to struggle to breath. His face started getting purple and his eyes were open wide. I lifted him and tapped his butt to get him to breath, raised his arms, gad my husband call 911. He started to breath normal after about 20 seconds. Paramedics checked his vitals and said he was fine. I'm currently waiting to hear back from my doctor. Baby is fine now smiling and happy baby has never been sick. I was so scared as I prepared to have to do CPR . What would have caused this?View Thread
