Snoring: I usually recommend weight loss as the ultimate treatment. If not obese, then Afrin nasal spray for no longer than 5 days.

Snoring in an infant: Or child may be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea. Ask your pediatrician about a sleep study or monitoring your child's oxygen saturation during sleep, as even mild drops can cause developmental delays. If you took Lamictal during pregnancy, there is a slight chance of a small, heretofore unrecognized cleft of the palate or a submucous cleft, so referral to a pediatric ENT may be warranted. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tonsils OSA: She may have large tonsils causing some narrowing of the airway and thus snoring at hight. I am more concerned if she is overweight, because that can cause another level of obstruction. As she's breathing at night, check for "pauses" of her breathing, even count with a second hand on your watch. Any pause of more than 20 seconds is definitely not normal.Is there a " snap" as the airway opens? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Rare complications : Fortunately complications of tonsillectomy are rare with good surgical technique, post operative pain control and medical care.
