The most likely cause of this degree of sleeplessness in a child of your son's age is a blocked nose. Children simply cannot sleep or even fall asleep if their nose is blocked. If his nose is indeed blocked try using Salex nose drops twice day for 7 days and see if he improves. If not and especially if he snores then have him seen by an ENT specialist.If his nose is not blocked he may still have an ear infection and once again he should be seen by an ENT specialist.
