Snoring and Sleep Apnoea
Children who snore can have disturbed sleep leading to moody behaviour, poor concentration and frequent napping. Severe snoring can lead to obstructive sleep apnoea. This is where breathing may often stop for several seconds during sleep. These episodes may happen several times each night. This can cause significant worry for parents. Other symptoms may include restless sleep, sweating while sleeping, bed wetting, coughing at night and frequent waking.
