At night, your toddler cringes, speaks, stirs and sometimes beats against the bars of his bed ... But what does he do? He never sleeps?

He cringes his teeth

  • Strange the noise your toddler makes at night with his teeth. It's called bruxism. This squeak is unconscious and does not mean that your baby is anxious.
  • Do you worry about his teeth? This may wear them down a bit, but the baby teeth will fall. And the jaw? Do not panic, doctors have never seen a case of displacement.

He moves !

  • Children are often swaying in bed when they fall asleep or in the middle of the night. Some hit their heads or arms against the bars of the bed. Sometimes they even move the bed in the room! As for bruxism, it is a rhythm of falling asleep: your little one cradles alone.
  • That's why this phenomenon is for children who do not suck either thumb or nipple. These noisy swings often worry parents because they are mistakenly perceived as a symptom of autism. Rest assured. Children with autism swing as much at night as during the day.

He's snoring

  • Many children snore at nightwhen they have a cold or when they are in a bad position. Again, nothing serious.
  • If sleep is very choppy, if his snoring stops by pauses in breathing, from a few seconds to a minute, it is recommended to consult. Indeed, it means that the air passes badly. Very often the cause is simple. It can come from the vegetations: a tissue located behind the nasal fossae, which helps to defend against viruses and microbes and which, by being solicited, can thicken and become annoying.
  • It can also be tonsils, these two balls in the throat. Too big, they interfere with breathing. These problems are solved very well. Two solutions are possible: either one removes the vegetations, or one removes the vegetations and the tonsils. Their removal removes all these signs.
