Most of the time, he's playing xbox when I go to sleep...but nights that we watch tv together and go to bed at the same time, it's IMPOSSIBLE for me to get to sleep...he falls asleep in a matter of seconds, and is already snoring!! Every time I start to nod off...he snores louder!! I wish I could put in ear plugs at night, but I can't because I have two small children that I need to be able to hear if they wake up...and we've tried those nasal strips, and they work wonderfully...but he refuses to use them anymore because they'd leave a sticky residue on his nose and he hated it...so that's out of the question...what on earth can I do to get some sleep...he kept me up until nearly 5am last night because I couldn't get him to stop snoring...any ideas? Sleeping in another room is out of the question..Answer Question

I go to bed before he does, so I can fall asleep first. He sleeps on the couch a lot too.

I feel your pain. I can't wear ear plugs because I can't hear the baby. I will sleep on the couch when it drives me insane. I don't know how he doesn't wake himself up. My DH has a deviated septum and one side is just blocked so we are looking into surgery. I've also heard that loosing weight helps with snoring. He's gained about 40lbs since in the last 2 years (he calls it his baby weight) and he's working on that as well. You really have to make him understand that your poor sleep every night is going to effect you health and he has to take steps to fix this. If the strips work he should use them and just use some alcohol on a cotton ball to get it off. What a baby, you toss and turn all night but he can't sacrifice some residue on his nose so you can sleep.
