Q.

Snoring

Good Day Doctor

My son has had his tonsils and denoids removed during November 2010. Of recent Ive noticed that he is snoring again. Having said this I must mention that he sleeps with his dummy in his mouth and even though I take it out, he continues to snore. He is 2.6mnths

The last few days he was very restless when sleeping during the night.. Your advice would be appreciated.

Thanksing you in advance

Snoring is a sign of a very blocked nose in children. It is possible that his adenoids have re-grown and are again blocking his nose. Please take him back to the ENT specialist for an opinion.
