Just that really? When he's concentrating mainly. Is this normal? Do any of your children do it?

I know that I do it! I once almost fainted at work doing a very complicated procedure when I completely forgot to breathe.

I used to hold my breath until I actually passed out when I was a child. My mum had to blow in my face to get me to start breathing again. Bit scary for her, but I grew out of it!

I do it as well! When I'm stressed or overwhelmed usually - I just sort of forget to breath.... Luckily I've always remembered to start again in the nick of time smile

dd did the opposite and hyperventilated

very reassuring for both of us when a paramedic told her one day that you can't actually come to any harm because the moment you pass out you will start breathing normally
