Spasm of the sob

Respiratory arrest occurring at the climax of a crying crisis. The sobs are more and more violent and suddenly the breathing is blocked. After a few seconds and thanks to external stimuli (fresh water, small pats) the baby takes a breath.
Very impressive, the spasm of the sob can be repeated on the occasion of an annoyance, a pain, a fear, but is not serious.
