Help: Major Leaking
RE: Help: Major Leaking
For all those that didn’t ask... Smile

Tongue Suck Technique:
Place your tongue to the roof of your mouth with tip of tongue behind front teeth.  Slowly suck upwards and back.
This places the tongue in a natural position, with the back of tongue sealing the back of the throat so that if you open your mouth/jaw while sleeping, no air will escape.

Note: This takes time and practice, but well worth it if you can master it.

I’m not a fan of mouth taping, but many are successful doing it. Alternatively, you can try a soft cervical collar which helps to keep the jaw from dropping open at night. Check Amazon, they have many sizes.

Big Guy, I misspoke.  I said I had replied in your other thread, but it was Misty River's thread where you popped in with a comment...the one about needing encouragement.  My apologies for that mistake.
