    My 3 yr old has been waking at night sometimes as much as every hour. He snores, has a little bit of apnea, mouth breathes, always seems to have a cold or slight allergies. Am I looking at tonsillectomy?

      Hi Whitney,
      Thank you for visiting us at The Baby Sleep Site! I’m sorry to hear you son is waking so much at night. While we do work with children who have sleep apnea and other medical conditions, we are not medical professionals, and always recommend talking with your child’s doctor first before implementing any sleep coaching. If your son is dealing with apnea, his pediatrician will be able to help you explore the best treatment options for him. Good luck with everything!

    Hi Emily,
    My 13 month old is being looked at for possible obstructive sleep apnea. I’ve suspected she has had it from day dot. She is under a paediatric doctor and an ENT specialist. We are waiting on a hearing test and an overnight Oxygen monitor. I’m getting quite frustrated as it’s taking so long to get a confident diagnosis. She wakes so much over night and seems so thirsty all the time. She is able to self settle. I’m quite strict on bedtime routine as she is number 4 bub. Thought I had the sleep stuff all sorted. She has taken it to a new level of night waking. I’m hoping we don’t have to wait too long to get this all sorted and we can all get some much needed sleep.

      @Lucy, Thank you for taking the time to comment and for sharing your story. I am sorry to hear about the medical issues your daughter has been having. Hopefully her medical team can find out what is going on and help you get better sleep for the whole family! Hang in there!

    Thanks…we were quite relieved too…and thanks for spreading the word…it’s not always “just cute” when a child snores!

    • Emily DeJeu says:

      @ Melanie – exactly! In fact, most snoring isn’t cute at all, since it’s a sign of an underlying issue that needs to be corrected. My oldest son’s snoring was our first sign that he had enlarged tonsils and adenoids, and needed a tonsillectomy.

      Thanks again for sharing your experience with us, Melanie!

    Our son did/does not have OSA, but his snoring definitely did impact his ability to sleep (and ours!).

    • Emily DeJeu says:

      @ Melanie – I’ll bet! So glad to hear the snoring wasn’t a sign of a more serious underlying problem, though…that can be scary. Thanks for commenting, Melanie, and happy sleeping to you and to your family! 🙂
