My 2 year old son snores loudly and his breathing is constantly interrupted and he kicks and screams while sleeping. Any suggestions?

  • I would take him to the doctoers and also to a ent cause if this keeps going on it can make it hard for him later in life to do anything, and the more sleep he losses the more cranky and fustrated they get and I now this cause my 5year old has the same problem and there going to take out his toncels and stuff to help him breath better and they said it would also help his attidude, but thats something you might want to ask his doctor...

  • First his Ped and then the ENT. He may have an allergy or it could be his eustachian tubes aren't draining properly.

  • I'd make an appointment with his pediatrician and get the problem checked right away. It might be fine, but sleep apnea is nothing to mess around with because it can cause lowered oxygen levels into the next day of wakefulness, which can lead to developmental problems.

  • May be his adenoids are blocking his airway. It can cause sleep apnea (stopping breathing for a few seconds while sleeping several times a night) Take him to be seen asap.

  • Have you brought him to an ear, nose & throat Dr.? Call his Pediatrician & get the name of one that they recommend. Maybe it's his adnoids or a deviated septum.
