Brother And Sister Sleep Together
Self Consolation: Between four and six months of life a baby has the ability to learn the skill of self consolation, this is an important life skill for parents to help their baby learn! So you'll want to put the baby down after your evening routine and last breastfeeding/bottle when he is sleepy, yet not asleep! He will learn to suck a thumb, rub a blankie, twirl his hair, etc... And console himself.See 2 more doctor answers
Physician first: If the physician rules out sleep apnea or other medical issues, then the dentist can construct an easy to wear specialized mouth guard that helps to reduce snoring or mild sleep apnea. For people who are overweight, loss of excess weight may provide improvement.See 1 more doctor answer

My sister gets like 5 hours of sleep everyday, and she just "blacked out" and fell. What could be the reason?
Sleep hygiene.: Tell your sister to go to bed at the same time every night, awaken at the same time every morning, don't nap during the day, use the bed for sleeping (not eating, TV watching, reading, etc), if you awaken during the night, stay in bed until your determined awakening time.
Is there a specific health benefit from sleeping in the afternoon. This is for my 3 year old sister.
I've urinated a little during sleep. 4 days already, Ever since my older sister started staying in my bed with me. I don't have any dreams?
Urinary symptoms: First, make sure you don't have a urinary tract infection by seeing your doctor. Having another person in bed with you is difficult; you may not want to get up to urinate and wake your sister so your bladder overflows and causes the leakage at night. It sounds as though there may possibly be some complicated family dynamics. Talking to a doctor about these issues may be very helpful.
My sister hasn't slept enough for more than 20 years. She can't go back to sleep after she gets up to go to the bathroom. How can I help her?

TBI: It depends on how hard you hit the sister, sometimes a blunt injury can cause brain trauma, please take her to er and have her cleared by er md that's the safest way.
See a doctor: She needs to see a doctor and get some tests too. This needs medical attention soon.
My sister says she has obstructive sleep apnea. Are family members more likely to get the same thing?
My second brother, has sleep apnea. There's a possibility that the excess weight he got can contribute?
My 15 year old sister only gets about 3-5 hours of sleep and she just "blacked out" and fell. Is this related?
POSSIBLY: An adolescent requires 7-10 hours of sleep a day. 3-5 hours is not nearly enough. Her fainting spell should be investigated in light of her abnormal sleeping patterns. It may be related or her fainting may be due to a number of other conditions. I advise to start with her family doctor. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

My sister is shaking in her sleep. Her whole body shakes (like she's cold) for 1-2 second. She does this 1-5 times a minute. Should I be concerned?
Could be normal: This could be normal movements in her sleep when she is dreaming. There are also abnormal sleep movements that are not dangerous necessarily but could be interrupting quality sleep. She can have a sleep study to evaluate this further.
My brother's sleep is random, polyphasic & very poor quality. He's stubborn about seeing his GP or to attempt a monophasic pattern. What might help?
Need more Info.: Does your brother work? How old is he? Does he take any medicine? Does his job require different shift? Does he stay awake playing games on computer/watching TV? Is he Overweight and snores? For the last 2 question: He needs to cultivate disciplined lifestyle and loose weight. For Sleep Apnea could be the cause of it.See 1 more doctor answer
