Sleeping Problem

Post by lostkitty » Tue Jul 02, 2019 3:04 pm

Hi, my DD of 8 year old recently has this sleeping problem. She has being having cough on Apr till May & recover on Jun. Along these few months, she went for swimming class & after the class, she tend to have cough non stop.

On Jun, since we came back from holiday, she has this sleeping problem. During daytime, no coughing at all.
At night when she deep asleep, she will suddenly cough 1 or 2 times, sit up straight away & seems like catching breath. She was like trying to vomit but unable to. After a min, she went back to sleep. This has being happening for every night for a weeks plus now.

In fact during holiday, I gave her some raw manuka honey (5+ UMF) to drink to reduce some hot weather. Not sure if this drink causes her to have the issue.

She has went to see ENT specialist a week ago & was given nasonex spray & telfast. She has her tonsils & adenoid remove 3 - 4 years ago as it causes her to have fever & flu every month. Was told by specialist that she was allergy to soft toy & etc.

I tried elevate her pillow but still happening. Does anyone's DS or DD has this problem?

Thanks all reply in advance.

Sounds like your daughter has narrow airways which makes it harder to breathe when she lies down. The recent cough probably has inflamed the airways more. Hopefully, the medications she is taking will resolve the problem eventually. You can try getting her to sleep on her side - it can help. I used to be asthmatic as a child, and also seem to have narrow airways. I can't sleep on my back as I will start coughing, so I always sleep on my side.

My DS used to have a sleeping problem due to his sinusitis. We have to wake up in the middle of the night and change his sleeping position as he had a hard time breathing through his nose. Doctor said it runs in our blood and cannot be cured but gave us some medicine to remove clogging from his nose.

If your child won't go to bed
-Decide what time you want your child to go to bed.
-Close to the time that your child normally falls asleep, start a 20-minute "winding down" bedtime routine. Bring this forward by 5 to 10 minutes a week – or 15 minutes if your child is in the habit of going to bed very late – until you get to the bedtime you want.
-Set a limit on how much time you spend with your child when you put them to bed. For example, read only one story, then tuck your child in and say goodnight.
-Give your child their favourite toy, dummy (if they use one) or comforter before settling into bed.
-Leave a beaker of water within reach and a dim light on if necessary.
-If your child gets up, keep taking them back to bed again with as little fuss as possible.
-Try to be consistent.
-You may have to repeat this routine for several nights.

Develop a relaxing bedtime routine to prepare your mind and body for sleep. Make sure your bedroom is quiet, dark, and cool, avoid heavy meals and too many fluids late at night, take a warm bath, read, or listen to soothing music to unwind, and turn off screens at least one hour before bedtime.

My kid also has the same sleeping problem. We were adviced by our doctor that she needs to take some medicine to help her fall asleep. Some of our friends also advised us to use essential oils to help her calm and helps her fall asleep. We will be trying to do this tonight and I hope that this would help her.

Yoga helps - Breathing techniques

Trained Yoga instructor (Traditional Hatha Yoga) this is not my mainstream profession rather passion and particularity interested in teaching children as I do recognize the need to prepare our young ones to cope with the unavoidable challenges of the modern day living and Yoga helps tremendously, earlier the start better it is.

I do not have a studio or website and I prefer to keep it simple and humble. I am not looking to place any price to it and I will gratefully and gracefully accept whatever the parents may deem appropriate.
