Hi, I'm new to this forum. I have a 14 months old son who has been mouth breathing since he was only 6 months. We never paid much attention to this until now. Took him to the Pediatrician who said he might have large adenoids but did not order x-ray to check him because she said even if he did, there is nothing to be done at this age.
I'm very worried from reading all the info on the Internet about how bad this habit can be - sleep problems, behaviour problems and facial deformity etc. etc.
DS has not had any ear infections and sleeps and eats pretty good. The only thing is he never liked taking his bottle or drinking from sippy cup because he breathes through his mouth.
Has anyone had a mouth breather and what did you do to help correct your child's problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciate it, as I have been losing sleep over this for the past few weeks already.
