Personal to Wallymoon.
Google "breath holding syndrome" Yes, it is alarming, yes, the child grows out of it. I think that perhaps it comes on at the time of childhood vaccinations is because the vaccinations come at the same time as your toddler is more likely to encounter the sharp pains of falls etc. You can mostly protect an infant from such pain.
Our diagnosis came after extensive neurological testing. (It was before Google)

On Vaccination Considerations

Dear Dr. Thoman,
I appreciate your column...lively writing on interesting subjects. I have a question. If norovirus is so easily transmitted, why haven't we all had it? Norovirus would not seem to be self limiting: it doesn't usually kill its victims. I don't think I really understand contagion.

On It’s Norovirus Season!
