Snoring is linked to behavioral problems in toddlers
This article reviews research showing that toddlers who snore on a regular basis are more prone to behavioral problems. This could be because chronic snoring is often a marker for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). And treating the snoring (and underlying OSA) could improve a child's behavior. If your child snores regularly, you may want to have him or her evaluated by an ear, nose, and throat doctor (an ENT) or a sleep physician.
