... i had him in my bed the other night and noticed he gets into a deep sleep then stops breathing for about 10 seconds, then he has a huge choke like gasp and wakes up in a panic. ii have always went to his cot when he cried before but never realised what was making him wake up. i am now scared to sleep and spend half the night watching him sleep (in my bed). could this result in cot death? im so worried my doctor cant see him until the 8th. is thre anything i can do to help him as he does it sometimes around 8 times a night?
