    Default 2 y/o snoring?

    Ds us a very congested kid, has been since birth.

    Tonight i've noticed he is snoring, his father and I dont often snore, is it normal for a 2 y/o to snore?!

    My 3 year old snores like a sailor... It's because his tonsils and adenoids are huge...

    Take him to your GP, my ds may have to have them removed as he is developing sleep apnea

    Snoring is not normal in a young child. Take him to the GP for a check up as candice has said.

    Our son has always snored, on and off. All gp we have ever been to have said just keep eye on it.. No big deal atm. My husband has sleep apnea as does his dad and my dad.. It's in the family.

    I think it only becomes a problem if the develop sleep apnea...

    My ds1 doesn't snore like ds2 but can snore sometimes when his sick etc...

    Ds2 tonsils actually bulge out of his throat... Poor little man

    I have the same issue with Julian. I've often thought he may need a DX for Aspergers because of his behaviour, however when I mentioned his snoring to the GP she said that snoring in children, especially with large tonsils can develop into sleep apnoea and that would be disrupting his sleep, causing his behaviour issues... as well as his tonsils causing his problem with dribbling and speech. So we have to get his tonsils taken out, just don't have a date yet.

    Thanks for your replies, Ds woke up with a cold so i'll see how he goes once he gets over the cold.

    Winter is bad for him, he got bronchiolitis first winter and a respiratory infection

    Second winter croup 3 times, tonsillitis twice (second bout a relapse from having to come of the antibiotics after he reacted to them)

    This will be his third winter, heres hoping for a better one.

    my oldest (6) snores - I've talked to the GP about it - she referred us to the sleep clinic at the mater ... I'm concerned because his dad has sleep apnoea - and I really fret that he might have it too

    it is definitely all worse in winter .. Jack had a bad wheeze last night - I got barely any sleep because I kept checking he was breathing

    not fun

    I would definitely head to the GP and just get everything checked
