My 16 month old keeps doing this thing where she will lay on her back, cross her legs while holding her hands together and she will repeatedly hold her breath for a few seconds then stop then do it again. She must do it up to 10 times a day and I don’t know why she does it. I thought it was because she was tired but she does it after a nap and whenever she gets the chance to do it she will. I have seen Health Visitors and they have said she’s doing it for attention but I don’t think it is because she does it when I’m not even in the room. I just don’t know what to do about it now, I’m so worried!
It sounds like a sensory regulation thing. She most likely enjoys the sensation because or likes it because it alerts her or calms her. Is she otherwise developing well?
She isn’t walking on her own yet but she seems to be developing well with everything else. I’m just worried and feel like this isn’t normal behaviour
