Sleep problems are one of the most common issues parents face with their kids. If your child has trouble sleeping, you may wonder if the cause is simply bad sleep habits or if it could be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
When to Call the Doctor
Actual sleep disorders are rare in children, but if your child shows any of the following symptoms or behaviors, let your child’s doctor know if he or she:
- Has episodes of snoring, gasping, and/or choking during sleep
- Breathes through the mouth most of the time
- Seems increasingly sleepy during the day
- Displays significant behavioral changes, including attention disorders
- Has nightmares, night terrors, or sleep walks/talks
- Encounters bed wetting or other unusual events during sleep
