You should be patient and understanding, he can't help it, you know!!!! LOL Just kidding, my husband doesn't snore, I do. Yep, and the whole dang house has told me about it. There are some products on the market that are to help with this problem, which I haven't tried yet. There are strips for the nose to sprays for the throat. I just keep forgetting to pick any up. When it comes to buying for myself, I tend to forget. Anyway, has he woke himself up yet, snoring? I do myself every night. If I don't then one of my kids will. My husband could sleep though a train derailing right outside, so he doesn't say much about it other than he knows I do it. I don't know about any one else, but I am embarrassed by it. I don't know why, I can't help it, but it does bother me. Maybe this discussion will be the thing I need to go get something for it finally. Wonderful unique question, thanks for posting!

I finds that if my is extrmely tired, he snores the loudest. He actually awakens me If I can get him to his side it is not as loud I bougtht him nose strips He did not like them but they did not do to much for him He is a little on the heavy side which also does not help

He can try the Throat sprays out there now. They work for some and not others but are worth a try. Also look into a pair of earplugs if all else fails. The spray helps me, tastes bad but it helps so I use it.

My hubby snores as well. I usually wake up at least once at night and cannot sleep because of his snoring. He has tried sprays and nose strips and they don't work for him. We also have an 11 month old daughter who sleeps in the room with us ( we live with his parents so we're cramped). She woke up this morning from his snoring at 1 am, and we are still up because of it (it's almost 4 am now). Hs is an every night thing.
