What should parents look for?

If your child is seemingly tired throughout the day, displays bags or dark under-eye circles, frequently experience nasal congestion, breaths through their mouth, or wakes up multiple times in the middle of the night, they may be suffering from sleep apnea. The next time your child falls asleep, observe to see if they are breathing through their nose or through their mouth. Mouth breathing with snoring or grinding, may be indicators of sleep apnea.
