Super Sonic Snoring – the most important question Retro63 and hubby have at the moment, to sound proof or not? That is the question?
Let me set the scene, peacefully tucked up in our new King Size bed, Egyptian sheets, pillowcases and doona surrounding us – cloud 9 you could say….then, it begins!
Mum and her Super Sonic Snoring!! This is not your usual snoring I am telling you, this is out of this world, loud beyond words and consistent, once started it rarely stops until she wakes the next morning…I seriously don’t know how Dad used to sleep through it! Possibly the industrial ear muffs on the bed head were a giveaway in respect of my question. Where some people have a set of pink fluffy covered handcuffs my Dad had a yellow industrial pair of earmuffs proudly hanging from the bed head!
The three choices:-
We move out?
She moves out?
We sound proof her room?
Pros and cons
we hurt her feelings 🙁
the room looks ugly 🙁
resale value decreases (if we don’t sell to family with the same issues or a drum playing teenager!) 🙁
we get a peaceful night’s sleep 🙂
resale value increases (we sell to a family with the same issues & they have a drum playing teenager!) 🙂
Maybe I need to do some more research before jumping to a sound proofing conclusion?
What do they say online? There is an absolute abundance of info on snoring and sleep problems – from the quirky to the very serious solutions, sleep problems and snoring are ‘not a laughing matter’ and are quite possibly signs of more sinister problems as stated on many of the websites!
Let’s have a look at some of these interesting remedies & info sites on this condition:-
Snoring often goes unnoticed as a disease. One who snores or the one who shares bedroom with such a person remain disturbed due to snoring but most of the time, it is not taken so seriously as to take measures to stop it. But snoring is a risky habit! Seventy five percent of people who snore suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. It means their breathing gets disrupted for short periods when they sleep. This increases their risk of developing heart disease. Therefore, it is essential to treat this condition not only because persons who snore do not feel refreshed on getting up in the morning and have the risk of developing heart disease but also because it poses risk to their marriages! In most of the cases, spouse of a snoring partner sleeps in a separate bedroom! So, if you snore, take help of these home remedies for snoring and save your marriage as well as heart.

Dentists – Who would have thought??
My research led me to an article which includes the following info – check the full list of information here
Dentists specialising in dental sleep medicine (or oral sleep medicine) supply and fit oral appliances to prevent snoring, usually in the form of a mandibular advancement splint (MAS). This device forces the lower jaw forward, increasing the air cavity at the back of the throat. They’re very effective – as long as people can tolerate using them.
So do I, talk to a dentist who specialises in ‘dental sleep medicine’? May be an option, or get some Rapid Home Remedies? Or, check out the info hubby sent me the other day….. link – it has some merit (sound proofing) but again the wall won’t look that wonderful 🙁
I think we’re going to try the soundproofing…..simply order on-line and it is delivered to our home! Hubby can install and I’ll tell Mum its insulation to keep her room nice and toasty warm for her, see no feelings hurt in the making of this sound proofing….! Works out for all of us, lets hope!!!
I’ll keep you updated on the outcome, hoping to have great news on top of some restful and quiet sleeps…..Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
