Your child had a typical breath holding spell which is common at this age and in your daughter's case was due to the fright she got when she hurt her toe. These breath holding attacks are very frightening but completely harmless. If she ever has another episode just blow gently on her face and she will soon start breathing normally. Children always start breathing again so do not be frightened. She will grow out of these breath holding spells.
