I. sleeping and snoring
Baby snoring refers to the loud snoring when the baby is sleeping. According to common sense, most babies’ sleeping and snoring will be significantly improved after 6 months, but there are also some babies who continue to snore until about one and a half years old. In addition, the baby after 2 years old will snore because of gland dysplasia. Baby snoring is divided into continuous and non continuous. If a turn over action can make the baby no longer snore, it is a non continuous and normal phenomenon. However, if the baby’s sleep snoring is not easy to stop and lasts for a long time, it belongs to continuous sleep snoring. In order to ensure the baby’s health, parents need to take the baby to the hospital in time for relevant examination.
2. Reasons for baby’s snoring
1. Poor breath
The poor air flow will make the oxygen entering the baby’s body insufficient, thus reducing the oxygen content in the blood. When this happens repeatedly, the baby will go into a state of discontinuous sleep. And when this kind of state often repeats, the baby may appear to sleep snores the situation.
This phenomenon may also be related to the congenital inheritance of parents. For example, because the mother’s jaw is not normal and the respiratory tract is not smooth, it will also be passed on to her children in general, which will cause their children to have respiratory obstruction during sleep, thus leading to the baby’s snoring during sleep.
3. Tonsil enlargement
In infancy, a lot of lymphoid tissue, also known as proliferator, is concentrated in the pharynx. If the proliferator grows too much, the tonsil will be larger, which will affect the smooth flow of the throat, and easily cause the baby to sleep and snore.
4. Nasal stenosis
Baby’s body structure is small, pharyngeal cavity and nasal tract are no exception, so they are very easy to block the situation, as long as there is a little secretion or mucous membrane, it will cause baby’s respiratory airway block, at this time baby will snore.
Children’s sleep snoring may be the precursor of sleep disordered breathing, which may affect their children’s intellectual and physical development. Parents with babies must pay attention to it, understand the causes in time, and know when to go to hospital in time, so as to carry out targeted treatment and ensure their children’s healthy growth.
