Brief Answer:
Get evaluated as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. These episodes may be breath holding spells or seizure.
If there is no tongue bite, incontinence, frothing, weakness of limbs then seizure is less likely.
You should upload a video of episodes.
You can visit a neurologist for evaluation regarding need for eeg or brain imaging.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
