Hope you're all well (And you're babies too)..
My baby son is 4 months old. He's had a mild cold and cough for a while now - probably about 2 months.
We've taken him to the DR, and they gave us anti-biotics, which we give him 3 x a day. He's a bit bunged up in his nose, but still manages to breathe without TOO many problems.
In the last few days, he's been shaking in his sleep and both my wife & I are very worried. We've been sitting on the edge of the bed just watching him - I'm SO fearful that he's going to stop breathing whilst we are sleeping!
It's very difficult to describe exactly what we're seeing, but I'll try..
He'll fall asleep (sometimes after a lot of toing & froing, sometimes after just a bit of rocking). he lays in his cot or his bouncer fully asleep - we can hear him breathing and although it's a bit heavy, he is taking each breath in & out.
Then, suddenly, every 10, 15, or 20 seconds, he will breath very loudly, almost like a snort, and his body will shake!! It's not constant - sometimes, his body will shake a bit, other times it's just his head, and others it's his whole body. It shakes so much that his matttress and the cot all shake with him.
It doesn't wake him and after each time, he continues to breath as he normally does (a bit heavy).
I've read other posts on here about this kind of stuff and ppl seem to think it's seizures. But what I've read, it doesn't sound the same as what our baby is doing.
Have nay of you heard or experienced this kind of behaviour?
ANy help or advice would be great.
Thanks for reading.
