I am not sure if snoring is really normal for people. Some people say that if you snore, you may have been from a very tiring work. Some says you maybe sick inside? I myself not sure if I snore at night but my wife says I sometimes do. Now what my wife bothers us both is our one year old son. He really snores. There is no limit really. Whether it is in the night or in day time that he sleeps, he snores like a fully grown-up ever tired man. Now please tell me, do you snore? And is it normal? For grown-ups it maybe yes, but to babies, is it normal? Thank you all. KEEP SMILING = NEIL

yes i do. but not always. usually i snore when i'm too tired from work. i also snore if i'm too stressed. what is funny is that when i snore, when i wake up in the morning i know i did snore. maybe i could hear myself snoring in my dreams. weird huh? i think snoring is normal. it's one way of getting more oxygen that your body needs. i'm not quite sure about that. but i'm sure it's not normal if you snore and you wake up the entire neighborhood. i once watched on Ripley's Believe it or Not that there is this guy who actually snore so loud he wakes up his neighbors. imagine that. i'm contented if i snore this way. at least my gf can still sleep soundly even if i snore sometimes. have a good day.:)

My dad has always snored loud enough to raise the roof top (or at least it seemed that way). I have been told that I snore to (I still claim I don't, cause who wants to be a snorer). My daughter snored when she was a baby and she does every now and then to this day (she is 9). If you are worried about it you should talk to the doctor when you take him in for his check up. I think for the most part there isnt to much to worry about unless it starts keeping you up at night.

I think everyone snores a little bit . I know my father is a snorer.when I was a child and lived at home ,many nights it would get so annoying, and loud that I could not sleep . Then he would start to caugh and make you think it had something to do with breathing . That is what many people think it has something to do with breathing . My fiance snores , and he says I do a little bit when I am real tired I dont think you have anything to worry about with the little one , but you may wanna look some info up online .

I really don't mind that my husband snore cause it only a little bit i hope he doesn't mind if i snore?!?

Most people says they don't. But if we will ask other people who are usually the ones sleeping with them, they will say you do. Meaning, a person may not know he snores or may not be aware but only those sleeping with them or someone who may look at them while at sleep.

I snore even if I am not tired with my work. My roommate said I might have problem with my heart but I think my heart is okay. Now that I am home snoring is no more observed too much since I sleep with my wife and sometimes with my kids besides me. About your son, do find time to send him to a doctor also just for a routine check-up.

I guess it is normal for some people to snore....maybe everybody snores.My son always snores,i am not so sure if his being prone to tonsillitis has something to do with it.The youngest, she snores but very soft.With me and my husband....sometimes he would say i snored but i insist i don't.Same with him,i heard him snore but he denies it----who knows.But i have noticed i was about to fall into deep sleep and i heard snoring.I woke up instantly knowing that i was just alone in the room....so maybe i am snoring at times.

My husband says I snore sometimes, too. I always come back with this answer: "I don't snore. I stayed awake all night once and listened!" He always gets a chuckle out of that.

Yes, snoring is normal but for a lot of reason. Yes, it is true that you might be too tired that is why you snore. My husband snores a lot and in the end, he is still tired. Doctors explained that it has something to do with his breathing or oxygen intake. The sleeping position is also one reason why people snore, not getting enough air or something. The pillow also has something to do with it. For your peace of mind, just have your son checked so that you will not get worried too much.

I do snore. I snore loud enough to wake the neighbors actually and it is pretty embarrassing but I snore because of medical reasons. I have adnoids which are supposed to go away when you are a baby but mine never did and I would need to have surgery to rectify that problem. Fortunately for me, I have been with people who can still sleep even though I snore. Sometimes people snore because they are tired or if they are over weight or if they are laying wrong....it can be a number of reasons. I wouldnt be too concerned about the baby snoring unless it seems that the baby is having a hard time breathing or even stops breathing for a few seconds.....thats called sleep apnea and that needs immediate medical attention. When it comes to people, there really isnt such a thing as normal so dont stress....I think the baby is just getting some good sleep!

Babies sometimes have extra fat around their necks - thats just how babies are. Or they could have a blocked sinus passage from a cold or allergies etc. These things can cause snoring. I'm told I snore, I wouldn't know since I'm asleep. LOL But I have known some really loud ones - my ex was one. I started sleeping with ear plugs every night and I could still hear him. I'd say ask the child's doctor at the next routine check up.

Snoring can be normal. Some people might snore when they have a cold, flu, or allergies because of nasal and sinus inflammation. Some people will snore if they have broken their nose, due to the changes that take place in the nasal cavity. Other people might snore if they have enlarged tonsils. This is particularly prone to happen among people who are overweight. When snoring happens, the tissue of the throat sags a bit and partially blocks the airflow, causing the noise associated with snoring. If your son is snoring, you might want to think about bringing him to the doctor. It's probably due to sinus congestion or allergies.

I don't snore, but some of my family members do snore. They say snoring is not normal, and that it is a sign of something wrong with one's health (specifically the system that we use to breathe).

I do not snore, but my husband sure does! He also has sleep apnea. I know that sleep apnea is dangerous, even lethal sometimes, but I don't know about snoring. My oldest son snored when he was a baby, too. It turned out that he has "larger than normal" adenoids. They are like tonsils, only higher up. I do not know what causes most snoring, but I do know that if the snoring is very loud or continuous, it can interrupt a good night's sleep! My husband is always turning over or moving around while he's sleeping. Sometimes, he snores so loudly that I have to get out of bed and go sleep on the couch! I bought ear plugs just so I could get as much sleep as possible! Maybe you should talk to your son's doctor about it. He could have enlarged adenoids. They are nothing to worry about unless they get infected, just the same as tonsils. But if that is the case and they cause your son to have sleeping problems, he may have to have his adenoids removed. It is nothing to worry about, though. My son is now 27 years old, still has his adenoids and he still snores!

My two kids snores too. I've observed that whenever they got tired from playing. But as for me, I don't know. I better ask my husband about it. But my husband sure does snore. I got used to it. And It's like music to me. hahaha.

I don't snore and I also don't like other snore when they are sleeping.My father sometimes snore and I mother always wake him up and tell him not to sonre any more and then let him sleep again.Sometimes it's useful but sometimes it's useless.Hahaha. I heard from the doctor that snoring is a kind of throat disease.And if the patients don't treat it correctly,maybe they will going to mute,althrough the probability is very low.

I usually snore when I am really tired. Although I really don't know it because people just told me that. I really don't know if it is normal for babies so I think it's better to ask your pediatrician.

hello there... well, i watched in TV before about researchers concerning snoring.. some doctors, said that you may be sick or have a heart problem, or anything concerning with your heart and lungs..because snoring comes out when your breathing while your asleep..

Well actually, we had been to doctors to consult about our baby's snoring, his sleeping problem. But they said we have to put the child to a sleep test. Unfortunately, we still have no funds to pay for the fees. If that test will be done to him, at least we could know if that is really normal or there is something wrong inside. Thanks for keeping this one year old thread, my friend...
