This. They get so deep asleep that they "forget to breathe" of sorts. Apparently I continued to do this every once in a while up until I was about 7, because I remember my grandma waking me up when I did it.

Oddly enough, from a lot of the reading I've done, it seems like co-sleeping is the solution because your baby's subconscious will pick up on your breathing and it will help regulate hers. I know we never had any problems with it and both of mine co-slept with us for at least 2-3 months.

No, those birthday's aren't a typo either.
