Signs Your Child’s Snoring Should Be Taken Seriously

It’s often a passing phase, but in some cases, your child’s snoring is a habitual problem that requires treatment, reports Michigan Health.

So how do parents know when snoring is an issue?

C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital pediatric sleep specialist Fauziya Hassan, MBBS, M.S., says the answer often lies in what happens when a child isn’t sleeping.

“Problematic snoring can often cause poor quality of sleep that leads to daytime behavioral issues,” Hassan says. “Since it’s unlikely a parent is able to observe their child sleeping each night, these daytime symptoms may actually be the first noticeable signs. However, many parents don’t think to associate them with problematic sleep.”
