Q.

Snoring - Adenoids

Hi. My 3 1/2 year old son snores every single night, regardless of how he sleeps, i.e on his tummy, his side etc. He snores really loudly but it doesn''t seem to interupt his sleep. Should I be concerned and take him to an ENT Specialist to have his adenoids checked?
Thanks

Yes you should. Children should not snore. Snoring means that your son's nose is very blocked when he sleeps.
