My 7 month old co-sleeps with me and I usually place my hand on his belly often throughout the night for reasurance , last night I placed my hand on his belly and there was no breathing movement .. I looked at his and he wasn't his usuall coulor though there wasn't much light so I don't know .. He was stiff . He don't stir when I touched his face so I quickly wobbled his belly with my hand and he woke up no gasping it anything then playing and laughing for an hour .. I'm waiting to see a doc as we speak but I just can't imagine the alternative of he had been in a cot as I wouldn't have olace my hand on his tummy . What if it happens again and what if doc thinks I'm being neurotic x Tia

I really hope your dr can reassure you, I'm sure they won't think you are being neurotic, if it's a worry it's worth checking out.
From my own experience my DD2 sometimes go very cold and stiff when sleeping and I have done the panic wobble too. Obviously I don't know, but perhaps it's a symptom of deep sleep?
Good luck. flowers

Sorry to hear this. We have a history of SIDS in our family, so I used to put a breathing monitor in my child's cot (under the mattress). The alarm would go off if they stopped breathing (it never did). I found this very reassuring.
