Keeping an Eye Out for Early Signs
It’s important for parents to carefully observe their children for early signs of sleep apnea. Snoring is a classic symptom. Other manifestations include chronic mouth breathing during sleep, long pauses in breathing, too much tossing and turning in bed, night sweats, and even bedwetting. During the day, children with sleep apnea may have behavioral problems, headaches, excessive daytime sleepiness, trouble concentrating, or speak with a nasal voice.
