Stephanie Davis had to rush her son Caben to hospital last month after he stopped breathing
Stephanie Davis' newborn son "turned blue" after he stopped breathing for a "few seconds."
The 24-year-old actress was forced to rush her seven-week-old baby Caben-Albi to the hospital at the beginning of last month after his blocked nose stopped him from taking a breath.
Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: "I was at home with my mum and aunt and Caben was struggling to breathe and held his breath for a few seconds, which was quite scary.
"He turned a little bit blue around his nose and mouth for a few seconds due to having a blocked nose. He has had a blocked nose since was a born, but it was getting worse and then that happened. I scooped him up in my arms and we rushed him to hospital.
"As soon as we got to A&E the doctors immediately stuck tubes up his nose to relieve his passageways and admitted him to the ward."
The little one is still battling with a blocked nose but doctors aren't overly worried about it and are planning to review him again in three months' time as they think it'll sort itself out.
She explained: "His nose is still blocked, so I've been taking him for tests at the hospital. At the moment, they think it is something that he might grow out of but we have another appointment in three months to make sure it's cleared up. For now, if it gets bad again we can take him to our local hospital and they'll clear his nose straight away."
However, although the doctors aren't worries, Stephanie is struggling to sleep.
She told the publication: "I've been absolutely beside myself. I'm barely sleeping because I'm worrying about him all the time - I'm completely drained."
