My daughter (3 and a half) since the age of 9 months has slept all night a handful of times. I thought it was an attachment thing as we previously co-slept so I have just disregarded the thought that it could be a sleep problem.
She wakes at least 2 times a night, not for long, maybe for the loo also.
She has always been a snorer, not every night but everyone goes on about how loud she can snore.
She has started nursery now and we are finding it hard as she needs a nap during the day, even when she wakes from a nap she is really grumpy, she has always been this way. Ive been letting her nap about 4pm after nursery. it doesn't effect her night time sleep, she wakes anyway. She really only needs the one nap but she can fall asleep during tea, while drawing, on occassions her eyes have closed while standing up and I have had to lift her up in fear that she will fall
The thing that has worried me recently is that she has started twitching, mainly when tired and just as she is falling asleep. Her mouth/cheek twitches followed by a little head shake. She has been twitching for about 3/4 weeks now and I have been keeping a close eye on it. I am making an appointment with the doctors tommorrow. When she fell asleep today, she did 3 sets of twitches in a row with about 15 seconds in between, her arm and fingers twicthed at one point too. I am very worried now, I have researched many things, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, the list goes on.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
