Yes: Babies are predominantly nasal breathers so if they are congested for whatever reason, residual amniotic fluid, reflux issues, dried nasal secretions or a cold then you might hear some snoring.

Snoring can equal hy: If the child is suffering from chronic partial airway obstruction causing hypoxia, you want to know the level of oxygen the brain is getting. An ENT physician can examlne his airways and treat him to insure that he has adequate airflow.. By ordering a 24 hr. Oxygen level. If he or she is getting hypoxia, and it is corrected, a number of potential negative brain outcomes can be prevented.

BABY SNORING: Anyone who snores may have a larger problem looming. Snoring in babies may be a sign of a breathing disorder and it is best to have you child examined sooner rather then later. Contact your pediatrician who may refer you to a pediatric ENT or pulmonologist.
