Tomorrow morning (yes, tomorrow already!) he sees Dr. C in ENT. I hope we can get some answers. Either he has large adenoids and he'll need to have them removed, or he just snores and he'll outgrow it. Either way, we should know more tomorrow. I have heard from a few people that he is very good and thorough. I like that I got right in with him tomorrow! I was expecting a month (or more) wait. The receptionist (or HUC) I was talking to on the phone asked if he snored and if he had other issues; I told her it was just the snoring and she said it sounds like her son, who had surgery and then did much better.
On September 22nd, he sees Dr. H, the specialist in infant and toddler behaviors. She should be able to help us with his head hitting. I am thinking, maybe the two are related. Maybe he is tired from not getting restful sleep as a result of the snoring, which is causing him to be tired and act out during the day.
Hopefully we get him all fixed up! I don't think there is anything "wrong" with him. He is very social--he smiles at people, says "hi" and "bye" to people in the stores (complete, random strangers) and is very affectionate.
A question for all of you parents out there, just to find out how normal this is: does/did your toddler snore? I have always thought it was normal, but am finding out that co-workers' toddlers do not snore.
