Yep. Of course all of us should be alert, but check out any kids you know who 'snore' in a way that changes their breathing. Much, much better to intervene while their still growing.

You don’t have to snore to have sleep apnea. I have it and don’t snore. I have the “low arousal threshold” subtype. I don’t actually have many periods where I stop breathing — I have micro-awakenings whenever there is some resistance. Basically, I wake up before my breathing has a chance to stop.

So, sleep disordered breathing without snoring.

Thanks! I had no idea this existed, but it makes sense. I'll look into it.
