My 3rd had it. Her daddy, his dad, and my dad all had it too. It when, for some reason, you stop breathing multiple times at night, resulting in poor sleep and being tired and cranky all the time due to lack of good sleep. My DD didn't show signs til she was about 2.5-3, then when she was about 3yrs 8mos old it finally dawned on me. We went to her normal doc who had no problem referring us to an ENT who said without a doubt she had problems - didn't even do a sleep test because she could see how DD's tonsils & adenoids were too big for her and cutting off her air supply. Had a T&A done 3 days before her 4th birthday (over a year ago) and she's been doing wonderfully since then.
