Is a snoring toddler always a warning sign? or is it sometimes benign? he only snores 50% of the time& i haven't noticed any pauses in breathing.

Depends on situation: We are finding that any kid who snores a lot in sleep prior to age 4-5 will likely develop sleep apnea if it is not present already.Evaluation by an ENT is indicated.
