Q.

23 Month old baby that coughs and snores at night after a feed

He only coughs and snores at night whilst sleeping. He has two bottles of Nido milk (250ml) only at night. Could this be causing it and if so what should I change too

You have noticed that your little toddler snores at night while sleeping. Children should not snore. If they do this usually means that they have a very blocked nose. This is usually due to enlarged adenoids. It is important that you take your little son to see an ENT specialist for an opinion about his snoring.His snoring is unlikely to be due to the Nido he drinks at night.
