Gasping for breathe

    My little one who has PWS (prader-willi syndrome) snores very loudly all night, and wakes a lot gasping for breathe. I have spoke to her ENT, who has advised a sleep study. Just wanted to know if there was a safe way for her to sleep, as I am so worried about this it disturbs my sleep too, as I'm always checking her breathing.

    Hi @mbell,

    I would have to agree that you need a sleep study for your LO. It does sound just from your brief description like sleep apnoea. Where abouts do you live?
