Snoring

Hi doc

My neice is only 6 months old and she is snoring more than adults and this is getting worst since she was born. She is not big infact she is smaller than her age. What could be the course of this?

Snoring in babies is a sign of serious nasal blockage. This is usually due to enlarged adenoids. Snoring can lead to problems with breathing. It is essential that this little baby is seen by an ENT specialist as soon as possible.
