It’s not unusual for kids to be loud; but when it happens while they’re sleeping, there might be cause for concern. Research links snoring to kids’ behavioral problems.
Researchers have found that children ages 3 and younger who snore are more likely to be hyperactive and inattentive.
According to lead researcher Dean W. Beebe, loud and persistent snoring “should be on parents’ radar, and it’s something they should bring up to their pediatrician.
“Kids are going to snore sometimes, especially when they have a cold,” he adds. “It’s when the snoring persists that it gets concerning.”
