So we are 2 weeks post tonsil & adenoid removal of my 27month old.
According to ENT apparently they were very scarred tonsils?? Meaning lots of infections?? Who knew!!! Lol
Just asking if and when any changes occurred for your toddlers in relation to eating and sleeping?
Our main issue has been lack of eating and lack of sleep!!! He didn’t have sleep apnoea and ent said the tonsils actually weren’t THaT big either. So I’m just wondering if there is going to be any change at all in his sleeping habits or eating. Because I am over it! And exhausted!!! ;(

I only know from my own experience as a ten year old having my tonsils and adenoids out.
The whole thing was incredible uncomfortable. Bub is probably in a lot of pain - hence trouble sleeping.
Also, food tasted really weird and everything I drank came spewing out my nose. I had to re-learn how to drink and it took weeks.
I'm so surprised that such a little baby needed their tonsils out, it took ten years of serious repeated tonsillitis for doctors to even consider taking mine out.

My almost 2 year old DS had his adenoids out last week (but kept the tonsils thank goodness!) and has been all over the place. Eating much less and waking during the night which he never normally does.
I'm hoping it doesn't last too much longer, I'm getting pretty tired of it too! The bad breath is also a shocker
Hang in there xx

My ds had them out an adenoids. Its a horrific 2 week recovery. Sleeping and eating improved for us from about day 11. He ate a lot better once the pain was gone and took a bit to get out of the painful swallowing stage. Sleep was much better but he had osa so not waking 5 times a night was bliss. Well worth it now 7 months later. Different kid.
