Is Snoring Normal in a Child?


Snoring may be associated with a simple cold that you can see happen occasionally. However, snoring on a more frequent basis can definitely be a cause for concern. Snoring can also look and sound different person to person. It doesn’t have to be loud to be considered snoring. The Sleep Foundation, and many newer research studies, believe that When snoring becomes more frequent and interrupts sleep, it can indicate the presence of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). Further, research has started to suggest that your child’s general behavior and/or cognitive function may decline with a greater snoring severity. Snoring is not normal. Snoring can be a sign of a structural issue or myofunctional issue that needs to be addressed.
