And if you’ve been reading our blog for awhile, then you may also be working on sleep coaching by gently weaning your child away from sleep associations, and ensuring that your baby or toddler can fall asleep independently. An easy way to keep this straight is to remember that obstructive sleep apnea means your child has trouble breathing due to the airway being blocked; central sleep apnea means your child stops breathing altogether for a brief period of time (up to 20 seconds, usually). Keep in mind that premature infants are especially prone to central sleep apnea, and typically need to wear apnea monitors to ensure safe nighttime sleep.
Daytime sleepiness at preschool or during class, in spite of what seems like adequate nighttime sleep. If sleep apnea is your baby or toddler’s ONLY sleep problem, then getting medical care and addressing the sleep apnea may very well mean your sleep issues are solved.

And it’s becoming clearer and clearer that sleep apnea (particularly obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA) is wildly under-diagnosed among children. In rare cases, the complications of sleep apnea (including frequent exhaustion and irritability) can lead to extreme problems, like the case of a young Chicago boy who’s sleep apnea made him so tired, it nearly caused him to be expelled from school and sent to a behavioral health hospital.


With obstructive sleep apnea, sleep is interrupted because the airway is actually partially blocked (which can happen for a variety of reasons).
My oldest son’s snoring was our first sign that he had enlarged tonsils and adenoids, and needed a tonsillectomy. Statistically, around 1% of children have sleep apnea diagnoses, but according to this article, it’s more probable that 10% of children actually have this problem. Central sleep apnea is less common, and usually occurs in premature babies; with central sleep apnea, the brain fails to send the proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. It also tends to last much longer than central sleep apnea, and not all children outgrow it. Our team of expert sleep consultants is ready to create a Personalized Sleep Plan™ just for your family. The plan will walk you through every step of the sleep coaching journey, and will be 100% personalized to your child’s personality and needs, and will mesh with your parenting goals and philosophies.
