Re: does this sound like epilepsy
I know how alarmed you must feel when these episodes happen. My daughter was the same age when she had her first seizure (she was diagnosed with epilepsy two years later). However, I honestly think this sounds more like apnea than seizures. Apnea episodes occur when the tonsils and/or adenoids block the airway, reducing the ability to get oxygen into the lungs. The reduced oxygen causes blue lips, and can also cause the unconsciousness. For this issue, I'd suggest taking your baby to an ear,nose, and throat doctor (otolaryngologist). Out of all of the different kinds of seizures my daughter has had (grand mal aka tonic clonic, complex partial, simple partial, and absence), she's never stopped breathing. It could still be seizures, so I also suggest taking her to a neurologist.
