Are you concerned that your child may not be getting enough sleep?
The director of the sleep center at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota brings important information about symptoms and management of sleep disorders, as well as solid advice for promoting good sleep patterns for any child!
Sleep is essential for a child’s health, well-being and normal growth and development. Dr. Gerald Rosen from Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota joins Marti and Erin to discuss a variety of childhood sleep issues, including snoring, apnea, and difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. He offers helpful, hopeful information about ways to ensure a more restful night’s sleep for your whole family. If, like Erin, you have considered an overnight sleep study for your child, you’ll want to hear Dr. Rosen’s explanation of the process. (It sounds like Erin’s daughter is headed to the sleep clinic!)
