It’s not a buzz-saw, it’s your baby!

Parents of newborns are often surprised to learn that babies makes a lot of noise when they sleep. But snoring is actually very common, and developmentally appropriate, in newborns.
Tiny airways coupled with mucous secretions means your sweet cherub might sound a bit like a snorting pug for the first couple of months during those peaceful moments of slumber.

Of course, if baby seems stuffy, that can contribute to snoring. Many parents find that keeping the nose clear can help. The steam from a warm shower may loosen things up; saline nasal spray and an aspirator are another option.

If the snoring persists as baby leaves the newborn phase, be sure to make note of any patterns and discuss with your pediatrician.
