In brief: It depends.

Depending on how severe the snoring is and whether it sounds like your baby stops breathing briefly, it could be a problem. Record audio and video of the snoring, then make an appointment with your baby's doctor to examine the baby; bring the recording with you so the doctor can evaluate it.
Additional testing may be needed if the doctor feels the snoring is severe enough.

You're welcome - it may be time to see a board-certified pediatrician (and possibly a pediatric ENT) if the snoring is severe. They should be able to clarify the situation quickly.

I am unaware of a pediatric naturopathic school of education, corresponding to a true pediatric residency. Thus their knowledge regarding a child's health is no better than a lay person's.Snoring in an infant can be normal, but may be a problem. See pediatrician.
