She snores. Her adenoids will probably go down the older she gets. Maybe the season for allergies is causing a bit of congestion for her?

*hugs*

If she seems to be not rested after sleeping, take her to your pediatrician and see what they have to say. :)

Eryl, I'll give you a clue: she's 7 months old and I'm listening to her on the baby monitor right now.

And she's snoring.

Like a... snorer.

Cassie, the most awesome thing happened yesterday: she slept until noon. Which meant I got to sleep until noon. I couldn't stop thinking, "I have the coolest baby on the planet. I don't even want to tell people how lucky I am and jinx this."

But she's seemed tired for 2 days now despite sleeping plenty, so I'm the eensiest bit worried that she's sleeping so long because she's not actually getting good quality sleep.

She just got over a cold, though. I'll wait a week or so and see if it gets better.

Tell her to cut down on the ale. Usually helps me to stop snoring.

My son snored a lot when he was little. At about 12 months, they put ear tubes in his ears and at the same time, removed his adenoids because they were HUGE, according to the surgeon. It was no big deal, in and out in about an hour and back to normal within a couple days. He's 20 now, and never snores. Imagine, a grown man who doesn't snore?

That sounds about right. With a cold and allergy season her adenoids are going to be swollen, hence the snoring. She probably isn't getting the best sleep because of it. I am sure they will go down. I would however, not wait a week but rather maybe by Friday if she still seems a bit tired and not quite herself to have her checked to make sure her cold isn't sneaking back in.

Btw...did I mention how much I love the pictures of you two in your avatars? Makes me smile every time I see them. :)

Thank goodness Piper doesn't snore. That's just for the dogs.

It's probably related to her being sick or the weather changing or any of those other things that affect the nasal passages this time of year.

And she could still be recovering from her cold, or she could be starting teething. Piper always sleeps a bunch when her teeth really bother her. But it's that time for Miss Munchkin, who is completely adorable, btw.

Sammi (my 6 yr old) snores when she's stuffy - cute little teeny snores (not at all like her father - altho he really doesn't snore since he lost so much weight in the hospital).

Jason - my 2 year old - snores as well. It's a cartoony snore - snerk.... zee... snerk....zee. I imagine a feather floating up over his nose, drifting back, floating up, drifting back...

But she might still be congested - it takes a while for the gunk to work its way out. :)

Both my boys snore. And one of my cats makes a noise like this when she's asleep: "paaaarp... paaaarp... paaarrrrrrp...." But it's OK, because they're all adorable.

Hope the lovely Sarina isn't ill, Jenna. Give her a kiss from me. Just the one, though. Don't over do it...!

Psh. Women love a man who snores. Mah granny couldn't go to sleep when fat ol' papa wasn't snorin' next to her.

And any woman or girlyman who says they don't like it is a friggin' liar.

Oh. You're talking about your baby.

My dad ran grown men out of a church lock in. One guy went upstairs and slept in the pews and another slept in his van. Sadly, he was diagnosed with sleep apnea and now must use a CPap machine.

My Dad has a cpap. When I was a kid I could here him snore in my room, upstairs and on the opposite side of the house from him. Mom said once it wasn't the snoring that woke her, but when he stopped. Turned out he would stop breathing some in the night, hence the cpap. Now he actually gets some rest.

hope the baby is okay. What a cutie, and Jenna you look lovely with the flower in your hair.

I can snuggle in and listen to the soft riffs of toddler snores for hours. Problem is I want to cuddle and kiss the little tyke. If the snoring is fitful and loud--where the child is almost gasping for air at times, it's time to give the doc a call for advice. Otherwise, enjoy one of many things that make little Sarina a special individual of the human species.

If you are worried about it, trust your Mommie instincts. I am humbled in the presence of such insight and connection between mother and child.

Nick snored on and off since he was a baby...it was especially bad when he'd have a cold or when his spring allergies kick up. But since he's had his tonsils and adnoids out I can't even hear him breath in his sleep...even when he's laying right next to me. It's freaked me out a few times, I'll wake up and put my hand on his chest just to check! :)

I wind up doing that sometimes with Zach. I'll walk through the room and stop and stare closely at his chest for a moment, to make sure it's going up and down.

(Although I don't have to do this when he's making disgusting squelching noises as he dreams about eating, or something)

I love the sounds babies and toddlers make during the night. Tessa snores when she's getting a little congested, but not all the time. Sarina is probably snoring because she's just gotten over her cold, but Neuro is right. Mother's intuition is an important thing, and if it worries you, take her to the doctor.

Cassiopeia is so right about your avatar, and I'm well known as a cranky old cuss.

My new baby, who happens to be a two-month-old kitten, drinks milk in his sleep. His jaws slam together so loud that I feel sorry for mamma cat.

As for the snoring, you could always try snoring louder.

I had surgery to rip out some soft palate, but she's too young for that. I was supposed to spend three days in the hospital, but I decided "the heck with this" and left 12 hours after surgery. I just put on my backpack full of books and walked home. Cranky old cuss lives!

Back in North Carolina, I had the greatest doggie ever. If you're reading this, and you think your doggie is the greatest ever, you're wrong. Daisy was my border collie. She became a snorer when I accidentally dropped a fence post on her nose. 20 years later I still feel bad.

Anyway. Snoring. I know nothing. But that doesn't stop me from racking up the word count, does it?

Sleep tight, kids. It's after midnight in Thailand and I'm logging off. My wife and cats will hear me snore, but at least the neighbors won't. Progress.

Foinah

Mine snores, too. So does her papa. We are still co-sleeping and sometimes it's just a nightmare ;)

I made my husband go to a specialist because of his snoring -- he got this mouth piece that kept his chin locked in a position where he couldn't snore. That worked for about a month and then he found a way to snore around it! He thinks it's cute that Solas snores, and I suppose it is.

A humidifier (use a cold one!) will help dramatically. And saline her little nose then use the snot sucker. That will help her breathing so much!

Jenna, your doctor may recommend having her adnoids burned off. Our doc did this when Annabelle got tubes in her ears. Solved two problems at once and its absolutely routine. Her breath will smell for a few days. Otherwise, nada snoring. :-)

ETA: Yes. That's a real procedure. Common, I was told. So, no giggling.

False alarm!!

In a stunning twist, it turns out Sarina was *not* snoring, which is lucky, because I politely failed to mention that she sounded like a fully grown man.

Turns out that it *was* a fully grown man-- namely, my husband Anthony, who I thought was in the garage and was instead sleeping in the bed right next to her.

So I'm not gettin' nothin' burned out of her noids!

The awesome baby is currently sitting next to me, closely observing the socks she just pulled off her feet, and shouting, "Meh! Meh! Meh! Ahhhh! Ehhh!" I love it when she yells nonsense at her socks. It's like a Monty Python movie.

P.S. A side question: why does everyone think my little lady is a boy?

I never brought it up before now so as not to embarrass the culprits, but three people have repped me to say how cute "he" is. And in person, it's constant-- every single stranger who oohs and ahhs assumes she's a boy, even when she's wearing a dress. They call her "buddy" and "slugger" and stuff.

The last time this happened, I finally said, "She's wearing a BOW, and a LACE DRESS. Does she really still look like a boy?" The lady was a bit embarrassed, which wasn't my intention. I was really just looking for info. I feel like she's very girly. All I can guess is that it's because she's so big.

CaroGirl
10-18-2007, 11:55 PM
You could get her ears pierced. I considered that before my daughter had hair and looked like any old baby of either sex (although she was all girl to me). But then she got hair and it got long and she started looking, well, like a fer sure, fer real girl. We haven't got her ears pierced yet.

An aside: I did once have a white fuzzy snowsuit for my son, and when he was wearing it, strangers commented on how pretty she was. Meh, didn't bother me that much. That's why people call them strangers, I guess. They are both strange, and I'll never see them again.

Well, I'm off to yell nonsense at my socks now. Ciao!

She looks like a girl to me. But then, I used to work in the infant room at KinderCare and learned a lot about being careful to make sure about stuff like that.

We had mommies that had little boys whose hair was just so pretty and curly they hated to cut it. Then they got upset when people called their little men "pretty girls".

When in doubt I usually just say "Oh, how adorable! What is your baby's name?" And hopefully I get the answer I'm looking for and they aren't named something that could go either way like Jo/Joe Lee/Leigh Don/Dawn or Robin.

But goodness if you have her in a dress and bow ... then the folks are just thick and not really paying attention.

Also, I think to some people ... and I just don't see how ... because it isn't true ... but I do think some people believe most babies look alike.

It's hardwired into human beings. Everyone thinks little Zach is such a pretty girl. Drives us nuts. We started dressing him in blue outfits with baseball crap on it just so he was clearly a boy. Nope. "ohhh, what's her name?"

Nope. Don't get the total lack of observational skills of some folks. Although when Ethan was a baby, I was tempted to dress him as a girl fifty-percent of the time and tell people we had had twins. Let them wonder why no one ever saw them at the same time. Yeah, I know. One of those "crazy" thoughts.

My four-year-old snores, and the doctor says it's allergies. She takes Zyrtec, and it has made a bit of difference. I'm thinking she's going to need her tonsils and adenoids removed at some point, like I did. I was ten, and it changed my life. Seriously--I could finally breathe through my nose. It changed the way my voice sounded.

Jenna, that's hilarious that it turned out to be your husband! :roll:

The opposite happened to my older son regularly. Once, I had him in a blue onesie with "I'm a BOY!" across the front and someone still said something about how adorable "she" was. I think it sometimes has to do with whatever they are familiar with. Maybe that lady has a grandson or is used to being around baby boys?

(By the way. It's been a long time since I had a little one around so I don't know about baby fashion anymore, but at one time wearing "I'm a boy" or "I'm a girl" was considered very cutting edge!)

My little four year old Serena has been snoring a lot lately. But she's got congestion from allergies so my ped thinks that explains it.
