Parents would always be on the lookout for their children's health and well-being. It is necessary for parents to understand that sleep disorders have no age limit to show its symptoms and that parents need to be extra observant about their child while he/she sleeps.
In case parents are a little suspicious about their child's condition, some of the symptoms of early onset of OSA can include:
- Teeth grinding
- Mouth breathing
- Displays of restlessness during sleep hours
- Sudden attempt to breathe harder than usual
- Frequently complains of ear infection
- Poor or distractions in concentration levels
- Mood swings
Parents can be a little careful by observing behavioral changes and social interactions of their child as it majorly can be affected due to insufficient sleep or interruptions while sleeping.
Well informed parents are better at noticing if their child might be suffering from the early stages of OSA. This will also help them to make better decisions about whether or not their child might require medical attention.
