First off, he's fine.

But here's what happened. I had DS in his sleepy wrap while helping DH prepare dinner. He started getting fussy, kicking. I figured, OK, he's done with the sling. He LOVES to kick and can't do it wrapped up. So I take him out and he all of the sudden just starts screaming bloody murder - about what we still don't know. And then he turned a horrible shade of gray. DH freaked out and dialed 911 thinking he wasn't breathing (he was, he just fell asleep after all that crying).

So 4 paramedics and a bit of oxygen later, he's totally fine. Probably a bit of new parent syndrome going on, but boy is it scary when your baby turns colors he's not supposed to turn...

He probably just wasn't taking in enough air whilst screaming. And like I said, still don't know what caused it, he never cries like that. DH thinks it started when he was cutting up the garlic?!? Hmm.

Oh goodness how scary!

I've never had to call 911 for any of my children, I pray I never do!

I am so glad your son is okay!
