  • she is not a still sleeper and she has odd movements of her limbs not all at once so they are trying to rule out nocturnal seizures i cannot sleep with her because of the movements she does in her sleep it wakes me up and they always start about 2 to 3 hours after she has been asleep when she is transitioning between sleep stages

  • My friend did the sleep study at Stanford for her dd breathing issues. It was fun for the kid and hard on the parent.

  • My almost 3 year old has that same problem, I seem to get blown off for this as an "issue" I sleep with him sometimes and he moves literally all night long.. I wish you the best of luck to hopefully get some answers... !!
