What a comfort to know that there are other people out there with this. My 2 month old just had this happen to him 3 days ago, and I thought he was going to die. It was exactly how others on this site are describing it.

I have always fainted at the site of a needle, vomit, or even a discussion about an injury, so I'm wondering if I may have passed this on to my newborn.
