I woke myself up snoring this morning, but I was on my back. I never snore when I sleep in any other position. Perhaps it could be something as simple as the position he is sleeping in?

Show him to ENT specialist,whether he has any difficulty in taking breath through nose.Its not abig problem to worry.Once his nasal problem was cleared he will be airight.

It's not shameful if we snore, you know. Snoring, as what I have from experience, is sometimes cause by fatigue. I often snore when I did strenuous activities throughout the day and is badly in need of sleep.

It could be a respiratory problem, could be because of fat, or could be nothing wrong at all. You should check with your doctor, just in case. Check tnis: http://www.helpguide.org/life/snoring.htm

It's hard to say. In fact my son also snores when he falls asleep. When he has a cold, it will be serious.

my son snores too and i am also a little worried about yet ive heard from a doctor before that snoring is mostly cause by veing very tired from the whole day activity. sometimes, there's nothing wrong with it most especially if he's an active kid. but there are some instances that it is caused by heart problems, sometimes asthma and other related cases. the best way to deal with it is to have a specialist check him because they know well about it and can explain to you further the reasons for him snoring, especially you mentioned that he snores loud. i hope it helps! ?

As I know loosing weigt can cure snoring. This can reduce the extra fat conditional and make sure that no fat formation around our throat area. However, you have to know whether overweight is the caused of your snoring or not. There are still many causes on snoring, by chance I am writing articles on snoring, if you would like to get further information, please feel free to visit my blog at http://sleepapnea-insomnia.blogspot.com
