Every time I walk down stairs, a ramp, bend down, or bounce with my 3.5 month old she turns bright red, clenches her fists by her head, and stops breathing for 5-10 seconds then her eyes are full of tears. She has been doing this for 2 months. At first I thought she was trying to poop. Then I noticed it's only when she is going in a downward motion. She will do it if she is moved downward in her carseat and she did it in a friends swing. I have stairs in my house, I have tried to hold her different ways but she does it EVERY TIME! If I stop and she catches her breath she will do it again when I continue to go down. I've tried walking slower also.View Thread
