Did they do a pnuemogram on your child to figure out the type of apnea. How did you notice baby did not breath. My child is 5mth. old today & I noticed that she would get a little gray aroung her mouth & very pale during sleep. I thought I was just inexperienced & paranoid. My sister & her husband started pointing this out & mentioned that it was a sign of poor circulation.There daughter was premature so they had been thought to look for these signs. Anyhow, the peditrician did the Pnuemogram test-sleep test over night @our house & the results indicated that she held her breath as much as +20 seconds at a time. She was put on Apnea monitor on 3/23/00 & continues on it. They did Xrays of her heart to rule out heart disease; checked her Iron, checked her oxygen levels but they do not believe it related to reflux despite the fact that she spits up every couple of days. I am sorry you are going through this; it is definately a mental challenge to feel so helpless. But, I have noticed Hanna is not having as many gray & pale spells during her sleep & having less alarms. keep in touch-Mary
