I don't leave him for more than two hours each day and whenever he's really quite or turned away from me I get this dread that he's not breathing or become panicky whenever he does something slightly different. Overall he's really healthy, there's nothing proven to be medically wrong with him and the only time I ever took him to the doctor was when he had pink eye at 5 months old. I don't understand this dread.
