OSA: Obstructive sleep apnea is the likely cause. There may be transient episodes where breathing stops for a period of time (ie seconds). This type of respiration prevents one from entering REM sleep. It is dangerous in the long run.

How can I make sure my baby is warm enough at night without using blankets?

Dress appropriately: In general when dressing your baby you can dress them as you would dress yourself plus one thin layer. In wintertime, depending on your home temperature, it is usually best to dress him with a short sleeve snap top, followed with a warm footed one piece. If this is not enough, add another layer and see if your baby is sweating. In the warmer months remove layers accordingly. No blankets needed.

Why has my baby started waking up hysterical at night?

New stage/habits: This may be prior to your baby reaching a new developmental stage, hunger, a need for soothing, and/or may be related to an illness (fever). Another cause is a night terror, an episode during which your baby may be screaming but is not really awake. Just check on him to make sure he's ok but do not intervene. You may change the terror by slightly waking him just before the time it occurs nightly.

Yes: Snoring is not just noise pollution! snoring can also be a sign of sleep apnea, which can lead to daytime fatigue, high blood pressure, heart disease, cardiac arrythmias, and sudden death. This issue can easily be evaluated by an ENT (ear, nose, throat) doctor.
