Children sleeping issues

RSS

It is painful when you see your child struggling because they have a sleep disorder. Sleep disorders are becoming more common in kids than they are in adults. The disorders come with varying degrees of severity depending on the age of the child.  It is therefore important that as a parent you remain alert for signs of sleep disorders in your children. Some of the signs include:

Excessive Sleepiness during the Day

Children who have a sleep disorder will experience daytime drowsiness and will feel overly tired. The child may feel sleepy throughout the day and will want to sleep more than other children.

Trouble Sleeping

Children who have sleep disorders will have trouble going to sleep and may find it difficult to remain asleep. These children will often wake up earlier than it is normal. Note that the problem could also be caused by a variety of factors such as stress and mental disorders.

Snoring

Even though snoring is caused by vibrations in the upper away, it could also be caused by blockages which makes it difficult for air to reach the lungs. This could make it difficult for the child to sleep and could lead to a sleep disorder.

Nightmares

These are dreams that occur when a child is asleep forcing him to wake up. The child feels threatened, making it difficult for him to fall asleep. When the frequency of the nightmares increases, it can lead to a sleep disorder.

Other signs of sleep disorders in children include night terrors, sleepwalking, and bedwetting. Thus, parents should be on the lookout for these signs. If they are present, the child should be taken to the doctor.
