I had a massive panic this evening, we gave LO some Calpol - following docs advice - for a nasty cold, and she seemed to start choking which then turned into her gasping for breath in between cries. She seemed to be hyperventiallting. I think we badly misjudged when to give it to her and tried to do it when she was crying, leading to it going down the wrong way. It was unbelieveably frightening, I nearly rang 999. She eventually calmed down, but not before she'd gone v pale. I then fed her and she dropped off immediately. That was a few hours ago and sh'e now happily fast aslepp. I just feel like I want to spend the night on the floor in her room, I realise it was caused by the medecine going down the wrong way but it has really shaken me up. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
