Snoring, mouth-breathing tots more likely to develop behavioral problems

Recent research published in the journal Pediatrics demonstrates that infants that snore have an increased risk of developing hyperactivity and behavioral problems by reaching school age.  The study looked at over 11,000 children over a six year period and confirmed and strengthened earlier research on the affect of sleep on childhood behavior and learning.  Parents are encouraged to seek evaluation from their pediatrician or an ear, nose, and throat specialist if they have concerns about their child snoring or having trouble with sleep.  See the complete news article here.
