Talk to your pedi. It very well could be enlarged tonsils, which can also cause obstructive sleep apnea in LOs.

Not trying to say you should jump to conclusions, we all know that's bad practice. I just know what caused this kind of crazy snoring for my son at that age. But I do think you should discuss it with the doctor to see if there may be something going on.

I agree with pp. my neice used to snore super loud, they went on vaca & her parents realized she also stopped breathing a bunch in the middle of the night. She had to get her adenoids out.

I would talk to your pedi. I used to snore loudly too. But I had my tonsils and adnoids taken out and it got better.

My nephew had the same issue, it eventually turned into sleep apnea.  By 5 he had a tonsillectomy.

 You might want to have a sleep study done.  We did and found out our 3 year old girl had sleep apnea. We got her tonsils and adinoids taken out, and the doctor said it was good we did, as they were blocking 90% of her nasal passages! I wish you well. Post to me if you want to talk, but I know how you are feeling.

You could also ask for a referral to an ENT to get a second opinion.
