  • Has the Dr. checked his tonsils? He might not be sleeping because the snoring is waking him up. Lots of times that means he's not resting because, well, he can't breathe. My granddaughter is 3 and I've never heard someone snore like she did. It was awful. Her tonsils were almost touching... The Dr. said they usually don't take out the tonsils at that age, but it was a must! Check with his Dr. and see if that might be his issue.

  • yeah... he had his tonsils out last year because they did a sleep study and he pasted so they thought maybe that would correct it but a year later it didnt...

  • Everyone wakes at night. It's normal. He needs to learn to put himself back to sleep when he wakes. My 5 y/o also wakes at least once a night and either crawls in bed with us, or gets walked back to his own bed.
