Quick question

When the baby sleeps, it seems like he stops breathing for a moment, then takes a huge breath that seems like it startles him (though he doesn't wake, at the most he changes sleeping positions). In adults, that's a symptom of sleep apnea -- in kids with allergies, is it pretty common, and does it go away as allergies are brought under control?

I don't know, but if I noticed it in my kids I would definitely call the pediatrican to ask about it.

With my first kid I was always nervous about whether the doctor or the nurse would think that I was too much of a worrier. Later on I gave that up. They have to deal with people who worry much more than I do. I just call.
