Is your child’s snoring keeping you up at night? If so, you’re not alone. Snoring is a common symptom, occurring in about 3-12% of children. Risk factors for snoring include:
- being overweight
- having allergies
- other causes of nasal obstruction
- having enlarged adenoids and/or tonsils
- exposure to second hand smoke.
Treatment for these underlying conditions, when found, should help your child snore less often and sleep better.
