Anyone else had this issue, my 9 month old daughter snores and it sounds like she's choking and she hasn't slept well all week, she can't breathe thru her nose, I've been doing the drops for like 2 months and I'm getting worried now.  It's interfering with her sleep.  Any known causes of this? Does it sound like sleep apnea?  I had my tonsils & Annoids removed as a child becuz of excessive snoring and choking while sleeping, her 9 month check up is nxt week, but I can't wait until then, I'm taking her in 2day.

My dad, my brother and I all had the same problem.  Our problem is sinuses tho.  We have severe sinuses.  And it can get really really bad for us.  The doc says its a pretty common thing to. My dad is really bad.  He is like that every night...but my brother and I are only like that on occasion when our sinuses flare up.  But i def think it would be something to take her to the doctor about.  Even if it is something simple, it needs to be taken care of.  When something interferes with a baby's sleep its a problem, no matter the cause.  I hope everything is ok!!!

I just had a friend going through the same thing with her two year old.  I would get it checked out as soon as possible.  My friend's daughter had to had her tonsils and adnoids removed, the doctor said that her tonsils were so swollen that it was causing stress to her body and she developed a heart mumur.  The doctor said that he thinks the heart murmur will go away because she's had the surgery, but that still remains to be seen.   May God bless you both, good luck and keep us posted!

My daughter was like that and she had to have her tonsils and adenoids removed.  I would definitely try to get her into an ENT specialist.  She would get so bad that she would stop breathing.

I don't have any experience with this but I definitely would be taking her in as well.  GL!

My daughter had  a stuffy nose for months after was caused by acid reflux! Once she was put on medication, she was fine! I never thought it would cause stuffy nose problems but it does...

My son had breathed really heavy and snored since birth. I had always asked if it was normal and if he was ok. Do to other problems I was told at 6 months he may have asthma, then at a yr old I was told it was allergies. At his 2yr BWV the Dr noticed his adnoids and tonsils were swollen. The tonsils are so swollen they are touching! I also noticed a ew months ago my son stops breathing in his sleep and once he starts breathing again it struggles (sleep apnea)...scarest thing we are going to our new dr on Tuesday to try and get his surgery going again (we moved from NY to GA before it could be done). Best of luck to you it is a scary thing.

 I just wanted to say I hope you get to the root of the 6 month old snores, but nothing to excessive and it doesn't interfere with her sleep...hope everything is okay.
