Snoring daughter

my daughter who is two and a half years old. When she breathes she has some strange sound as if she is snoring even when she is awake . Her health seems perffect , she eats well , sleeps ok and is generally a happy child . It does not seem to affect her more than it feels like her breathing is elevated and the " snoring "  sound . Other than that she is active and a genrally heatly chilld . What can be the cause of it , it does not seem to irrritate or concern her in any way . Your advise will be highly appreciated .

Children of any age should not snore. This usually means that there is a problem with a very blocked nose. At this age your daughter may have enlarged adenoids. Surprisingly you mention that she is completely well. It would be best to ask an ENT specialist to see your little girl.
