    Default Toddler fainting

    Hi, just after support/advice..

    My 2 yr old has fainted 3 times this year from crying, either from a tantrum or from hurting himself. It's awful! He can't catch his breath, turns blue, then eventually faints. After a few seconds he wakes, is very tired, then after 10 or so minutes he's back to being a normal toddler again. I know it's not dangerous (we've been to a ped) but it's made me quite anxious when he's having a big tantrum (he's very stubborn, what 2 yr old isn't?!).

    Anyone have experience with this?

    Two of our children do this. It's horrible. All we do is try to keep them calm as it's happening (usually it's been a tantrum, or brothers rough housing), and guide them through it. Scary stuff, but for our kids it's about us helping them to self regulate when upset. From what I've been told, a lot of kids experience this.

    It was only yesterday DS3 and DS2 had a disagreement (they are 2.5 and 5, respectively....Both very much leaders!) and DS3 came to find me, halfway through holding his breath to passing out. He wobbled over to me and fell into my arms. It's damn scary.

    I used to do this as a child when I had tantrums. My parents just tried to make sure I wasn't going to hurt myself if a fainted (eg no objects I could fall onto) and tried to calm me down.

    It's horrible, I hate it. Hoping he grows out of it soon, the dr told us that usually happens when they're around 5!!!o
