My significant other seems to have quite the snoring problem. So much that sometimes I can't sleep or I'm awaken from my sleep. I'm not a fan of wasting money on things that don't work. Any suggestions?

Whether it is your little one or your significant other - snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea. I was surprised to learn that my daughter (who was 4 at the time) had sleep apnea. She snored louder than my husband. Apparently her little system, including her heart was straining to breathe at night. We had her tonsils removed and we all sleep better now.

Good Luck.

My husband also snores...loudly!  When I was pregnant with our 3rd, I was awake a lot and noticed that the snoring would stop briefly and then he'd breathe deeply and continue snoring.  This is a sure sign of sleep apnea.  If you hear this, don't let him get by without going to the doctor (ENT)!  Seriously!  My neighbor's husband died as a result of untreated sleep apnea..he was in his early 40's.  My husband now uses the cpap machine and it works like a dream!  Our son,  the 3rd child I was pregnant with, also has sleep apnea and the ENT is going to remove his tonsils and adenoids next week.  I hope his works as well as Patricia's daughter's did!

My husband has the same issue with snoring really loud. He says that I snore to but I don't as much as he does. Sometimes I find it easier to sleep on the couch OR if I don't feel like doing that, I nudge him in the night a few times and he usually rolls over and that seems to help. Maybe try nudging him and he will roll over if that doesn't work and you just can't sleep, go sleep on the couch for a few hours and then you will get some sleep. Hope this helps.

Stephanie I would also like to add that you would not be wasting your money. They open up the breathing passages. He also should see an e.n.t. Dr. I just had sinus surgery and really needed it. Alot of people also snore and could potentially have sleep apnea. Not that he has it but should get it checked if it is severe.

OMG! Breath Right snoring strips. You can buy the no name brands however will need some medical tape to put them on a bit more snug. The Breath Right brand has heavy duty stickiness. They work wonders and saved my husband from a nightly pillow beating....:o)

My OH had me awake for over 2 & a half hours...I finally get back to sleep (& I have sleep problems anyway without him making things worse) just over an hour before the alarm.  I told him he had to do something about it & hos attitude was to sleep on the sofa...so be it! I meant for him to see the doctor!!!!



I can't wear earplugs as if the kids wake in the night he can't hear them....even the baby who is still in our room!

I would do ear plugs but then I'll be in trouble if I don't hear my alarm in the morning. Also he snores the loudest when he DOES get the best sleep. I guess I should also mention that I'm a very light sleeper so it's not serious to him.
