3 year old temper tantrums: holding breath

Message length 300 characters recommended

My daughter has always held her breath when she's throwing a tantrum or having a fit. She started this as a baby (around 9 months I think). One of the things her pediatrician at the time told me to do was blow in her face. This will startle her and force her to take a breath. I still do it now and it usually always stops her from holding her breath again.
