I don't need to tell you that babies should not snore.If a baby snores this means that her nose is very blocked.The most common cause is due to enlarged adenoids. It is importan to ask an ENT specialist to see your baby so that a proper diagnosis can be made of the cause of her snoring.

my son had the same problem. He has sinus problems. since i had his tonsils and adenoids removed, the snoring stopped.
maybe have the doctor check her sinuses.
