18 months boy snoring

HI,

My son is 18months weighs 19kg, he started snoring a week ago. I' m worried because it doesn’ t matter which position he' s using he snores. I' m not sure whether I should take him to an ENT specialist or not

You are correct children,should not snore.If they do it means that they have very blocked nose. This is usually due to enlarged adenoids. It is best to consult an ENT specialist.
