Your baby should not snore at all at her age especially when she does not have a cold. This is usually due to enlarged adenoids so it is necessary to ask an ENT specialist to see her to find out what is causing her snoring. In the meantime use infant saline nose drops twice a day continuously to keep her nose as clear as possible.
