    anyone ever deal with a snoring partner?!

    my boyfriend snores and it's driving me crazy. any remedies? i already use earplugs which helps a little bit but i still wake up. i'm the lightest sleeper EVER. i need perfect silence. i'll wake him up and ask him to go on his side, which he does, and it makes him stop but i'm still waking up at least 3 times per night. during the summer the AC wall unit seemed to help and he wouldn't snore, but now that we've stopped using it, it seems he's back to snoring a lot. would a dehumidifier work? i'm not sure what about the AC helped but my first thought was maybe a dehumidifier would work?? at this point, i will have to sleep in the spare bedroom a few nights but that makes me sad help!

    Lol. My husband snores like a chain saw. It's worse in the winter because the air is dry. So he actually sleeps with a humidifier to try to combat that. It might help, but not too much because he is still snoring away. No good tips or tricks but just wanted to commiserate. I am also a super light sleeper and I can't wear ear plugs because I have to be able to hear my baby if she needs me at night.

    My solution is a good shove to make him move around so he stops. He sleeps like the dead so it doesn't wake him.

    Not much help but in my case I actually liked it, hahaha. Mine was snoring quite a lot but because he's away a lot (military life...) I found comfort in his snoring and now that he's deployed I actually miss his snoring.

    If you somehow don't grow to like it still, then you just have to elbow him and turn him to his side. I've heard that it helps but I wouldn't know because I never tried to silence my partner.

    I just kick mine until he wakes up and rolls over. It's not ideal, because it still means my ass is getting woken up by his snoring, but it's all I got. So basically OP, I haven no sage words of wisdom or great suggestions, but I can commiserate.

    Google snoring mouth guard and have a look at whats available and reviews. My boyfriend got one and its awesome! He still snores a little bit sometimes but its way way less. I can't remember which one he got but it was about $250 and I'm guessing there would be some crappy cheap ones you should avoid.

    ffuuu I felt like **** cause I snore horrible and it got so bad some times I'd wake up and my ex would be on the couch instead of waking me up. Nose strips and vicks helped a lot though.

    If it's an ongoing thing, I would suggest a sleep study to see if he has sleep apnea.

    I was the snorer in my relationship. It sucked. It was embarrassing. Nothing sexier than a woman snoring like a freight train, right? Anyway, I had the sleep study and my apnea was bad so I ended up with a CPAP. More sexiness. Sigh. But at least we both could sleep. My health improved a lot after that since I was actually getting quality sleep, and that's when I ended up losing a bunch of weight and now I only need the machine when I have a stuffy nose.

    You go to a clinic at night. They put little sticky sensors all over your head so you have wires and sensors on, as well as a thing strapped around your chest and one of those little oxygen things on your finger. Then you lie down, on your back, to sleep, while somebody monitors you from another room. They record your blood oxygen level and determine your AHI (number of times you stop breathing or breathe very shallowly per hour.) Depending on your score, you can have no apnea, mild, moderate, or severe. I don't remember where the cutoff is for getting a CPAP (moderate or severe?) but I was well into the severe category. I still have some sleep apnea now but it's mild enough that I don't generally need the machine.

    They may or may not have you stay the whole night for the study. I didn't have to report in until 11:00 and by the time they got the sensors on me and I was in bed, it was midnight. They came in and told me I could leave by 6 a.m. I had to go back the next week to do a test with a CPAP machine. Some places do the test with the CPAP machine the same night as the first test. I think that's preferable because it speeds up the process of getting a machine (if you need one.)

    Here's a good info page about sleep apnea: https://my.clevelandclinic.org/servi...ic-sleep-apnea

    Hubz snores. C-pap, ear plugs, fan in the room it all helps.

    The best thing though- a comfortable bed. I sleep like I'm dead now, so it doesn't matter if he snores. Granted, I wear ear plugs too, but the only time I wake up is to pee

    My husband used to snore something awful. We did eventually end up sleeping in separate bedroom. It was either that or me murdering him. Recently he lost a lot of weight and stopped drinking and lo and behold he doesn't snore anymore.

    My ex was quite a snorer. I thought that was cute back then because I was pretty deep sleeper so it never bothered me.

    ugh...i feel your pain, I'm in the same situation. I will fall asleep with my husband but his snoring wakes me up and i end up going to the other bedroom. I hate it. he is also over weight so i know that has something to do with the snoring. He also has (in my opinion) restless leg. The guy just kicks and moves the entire night. Drives me crazy.

    my boyfriend snores about 1-2 nights out of the week which is why I have another bed in a spare bedroom! Elbowing him doesn't help. He will cease snoring for about 2 minutes then it starts again and gets louder and louder and louder so I just wander into the other room and pass out and let him snore by himself.

    Being overweight has a lot to do with snoring. Have him drop some pounds and do some cardio and I bet his snoring decreases a lot. I know from experience, it helped me.

    Sometimes I find if I gently place my hand on his chest or sort of nudge his face with mine, it causes him to readjust his breathing pattern and stop snoring. Only lasts a few minutes before the snoring starts up again haha. He doesn't always snore_ just when he sleeps on his back, which causes him to sleep with his mouth open. Maybe your SO also sleeps in a position that's causing him to snore? Good luck! 👍🏻

    I think this is why most married couples sleep in separate rooms as they get older

    I hear firmly placing a pillow on his face works too

    My fiance snores wicked bad, I've found that he won't snore as bad if he has slightly elevated pillows. I've found that I will have to wake him up and until he sleeps further up on the pillows, then the snoring will lessen or stop.

    He needs to sleep on his back on a comfortable bed with several pillows propping him up. If you don't have an actual hospital bed that will adjust this is your best bet. Ideally, according to medical professionals, we're supposed to sleep in a somewhat elevated position on our back as opposed to being on our stomachs or on our sides. You never mentioned if he's heavy-set or a smoker or any other medical maladies so I don't know what else to say.

    Fiance snores like 1000 chainsaws being run THROUGH a bulldozer. Makes no sense, but you get the idea.

    If the usual 'jab/kick' to the side doesn't work, I elevate the head of the bed lol. We have a tempurpedic that you can raise the head and/or legs. Elevating the bed up a bit seems to work...or put some pillows under him if he sleeps as hard as mine does.... I can literally raise the bed and roll him entirely over without him waking up. How the hellz do men sleep that hard?! JEALOUS!

    My hubby snores a lot!! I found that a dehumidifier and breath right nose strips work the best! and when all else fails, plug his nose till he wakes up then try to fall back asleep first!

    Mine does, too....
    Funny story: usually if I just kind of put my hand on his chest, he stops....Many years back, I guess I hadn't trimmed my nails.....he was snoring like crazy...I reached my hand up from my side to do just that, and I accidentally stuck him in his scrotum with one of my nails....
    Of course he woke up suddenly in pain...
    I said, "oh baby, I am so sorry!! You were snoring...."
    To which he replied in a sleepy confused voice, "so you stuck me in the nuts...?"
    I was laughing hysterically by this time, but most importantly, he didn't snore the rest of the night!
    Feel free to try this, ladies.

    There should be a rule on bb.com that you can't give advice about stabbing men in the nuts.
