So, I realized about a month ago that my babe snores lightly sometimes. She has sleep problems, too, so I'm not sure if that is related?

Also, dd has always been a bit of a snotty baby, and I mean that literally. She just has a lot of snot. When she was 3 weeks, we took her to the emergency room because it sounded like she was having trouble breathing in the middle of the night. After all the tests and stuff, she simply sneezed and out came this huge baby booger and she could breathe fine. BTW, I don't do dairy and I know that it can sometimes lead to mucousiness in babes.

Back to the question, tho, do babies snore or is this a sign of a sleep disorder?

My older son did for a while when he was a few months old. He eventually stopped doing it.

Well, it could be either. It could be allergies or it could be a sign of reflux or sleep apnea, all of which can cause sleep disturbance. Personally, I'd try to get it evaluated if a baby snored-- it might be no big deal, or it might be something that really does need some attention.
