When should it be brought up to a doctor?

I'm not sure we were supposed to? My LO snores a lot, but not too loud.

If its a very frequent thing. And no apparent reason such as stuffy nose from a cold



Edit:
My skn always snored and we thought nothing about it- until he had a sleep study and needed his adenoids removed

My daughter used to snore all the time but she kind of, grew out of it I guess? She hasn't snored in a while.

unless your toddler has abnormally large tonsils, it probably isn't a problem. ALmost every one I know snores to some degree :)

I caught this thread out of the corner of my eye and thought it said Toddler Smoking. :lol: Time for bed!



I never thought to mention it to my doctor. Does he seem to stop breathing when he's sleeping?

I have HUGE tonsils and I snore like hell. :( I wish I could get them removed because I always can feel them when I swallow and stuff...it sucks. :(

My daughter snores sometimes, not bad though. I never thought it was an issue though.

He snores then kind of like gasps sometimes like he's gasping for air. He doesn't snore all the time but 85% of the time he does.

Might mention that to the doc then if he seems to be gasping for air.

Well I just knew that it can be an issue if they do if quite often and such.
I've read some stuff that says if they snore they are more prone to behavioral issues.

Yeah like he doesn't gasp for air a lot but sometimes if the snoring gets really loud he does.

If he snores a lot with no other reason, then I'd bring it up to them. They can have apnea or other issues. If he's grumpy a lot during the day, that could be because he wakes up a lot at night due to the apnea. Snoring can be a sign. Or it could be nothing. A sleep study is pretty easy to do though to rule it out.

My son is a big snorer. I never brought anything up to anyone bc I didn't know ti wasn't normal, until one day he stopped breathing in his sleep for a few seconds and then choked and gasped to get it back. It was a whole long ordeal, but basically he has sleep apnea but the ENT thinks he will "grow out of it". He has kissing tonsils (they are HUGE, he always looks like he has strep throat), but they didn't want to remove them. I wish I'd gotten a second opinion on it. He's almost 5 now and that happened when he was 2. He still snores but hasn't had any other incidents.

It's much more complicated than just snoring but yes it can.



Snoring generally means obstructive breathing. Which can mean apneas. Thi means they are not getting the proper amount of sleep and type of sleep. ( part of my major has been studying this- and my son is a prime example of this stuff)
