Your baby was virtually fullterm when she was born and it very unusual for her to be having such obvious apnoeic episodes.The reason why your baby who was not born prematurely is having apnoea needs to be investigated. This is unlikely to be related to her Dad's sleep apnoea. The usual treatment for apnoea in infants is theophylline,the same as Nuelin.This is not helping your little baby. This is a very frightening experience for you. Your baby really needs to be seen by the paediatric neonatologist at the hospital where she was born. The actual cause of her apnoea needs to be found urgently.Please take your baby there ASAP.
