Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
You better consult your Pediatrician for the evaluation of this blue episode and breath holding episodes, and for their prevention of occurrence, and the proper positional advise to make the child comfortable while sleeping and feeding.
He needs sleep study to evaluate for the obstructive sleep apnea and consult an Pediatric ENT specialist to assess him for the interventions.
Hope I have answered your query.
