Update: Breath-holding spells (No More Iron)


Unfortunately, using Iron has done nothing to improve our little one’s breath-holding spells. We’ve consulted with the pediatrician and decided to stop the supplements. Our next course of action will be a referral to a pediatric cardiologist.

The pediatrician believes the cardiologist will likely monitor Little One’s heart before/during an “episode” to see if there’s any correlation between the two (does the heart cause the breath-holding? does the heart change during an episode?).

We won’t have any appointments for a few weeks, so once we have more information I will do another update.

If nothing else, we keep holding onto the hope that she will eventually outgrow the breath-holding spells – hopefully before going to pre-school!
