Ear plugs for yourself.... or buy a tent and make a game of him sleeping outside in it! Lol.

I'd say that at 13 if it's that bad he should see a doctor. Might need his adenoids removing or he may have overly large tonsils.

I suggest you do what they did to ugly naked guy on friends. Gather all your chopsticks together... make a large poking device... and poke him. :yes: it's medically proven :whistle:

In all seriousness, I know exactly what you mean. My dad used to be a TERRIBLE snorer. I could hear him from my room as though he was next to me and mine is the furthest away from his and my Mum's. It was terrible. Since they've had one of those memory foam matresses he hasn't snored since!

Seriously, get some foam earplugs. I once had a houseguest who had a deviated septum and snored to raise the dead. Earplugs saved me (and the guest).

Also, I would push for the boy to be seen by an ENT doc. :yes: That kind of snoring usually does indicate a problem.

his mother doesnt speak to me or David and previous attempts for us to get him medical help fall on deaf ears its a very difficult situation :(

That really is too bad. I don't know how things work there, so won't presume, but since your Husband is the child's father has he no right to take the boy for an exam?

I realize that might spark major issues, but it really could be something that needs to be corrected.

Do try the foam earplugs! :hug2:

Snoring like that almost always indicates a problem, see an ENT please. Ty has had his tonsils and adenoids out twice,, he had a deviated septum repair at age 9 and they discovered that their were fractures behind the sinus cavities from infection ( pressure I guess) He was in surgery forever and developed 2 large hematomas and had to be rushed back in, He will have to have another repair but will hopefully wait until his facial structure is set.

Huh! How does that help? Does it remember to *poke* him whenever he snores? :unsure:

LOL, No, I think it is probably to do with supporting his back properly :yes:

Well now that's the single most sensible thing I've heard in a long time! :yes: Probably would work like a charm!

I would suggest something along the line of Breathe Right strips. If those fail have him checked for sleep apnea.
