My 3 month old dd keeps getting woken up at night time from my dh snoring. I thought if they get used to noise straight away they'll be fine with noise but not my baby. Any little noise wakes her up. Not sure if anything could be done. Taking baby out of room not an option

I think the ONLY option is to take the baby out of the room or take you and the baby out of the room.
OR even better, why not have your husband go to a doctor to try to get the snoring taken care of.
Other than someone leaving the room, there really isnt anything that can be done.

Can snoring really be helped?

You can have him try Breathe Rite nose strips. Some people can reduce it by changing positions.

Some babies are noise sensitive - it is inborn and there is nothing you can do about it.

Try putting a white noise machine in the room.

Try rearranging the room, so baby is far away from husband.

Try finding the position that causes the least snoring.

Try having husband sleep out of room or you and baby sleep out of room. Or baby stays in room and you and husband move into living room.

Sometimes snoring is caused by a different problem such as sleep apnea or reflux, and if that is taken care of, then the snoring disappears.

Of course it can. Hugs. See if your husband will go to the doctor for this. And go from there.

If he'll agree to the help which can involve a sleep study that for some reason many men have an aversion to.

I agree you should have husband medically evaluated. Snoring can be an indication of some health issues.

In the meantime, I would get a white noise machine. Or set you phone or music player to play some white noise or music. You could also get a cold-mist humidifier. Not sure if it will help with snoring, but I find it helps when I or my kid has a stuffy noise and makes its easier to breath; plus it's makes background noise which would help with the snoring noise.

Right now the baby needs you and her needs are priority. While your husband receives help for relieving his snoring, he should sleep in another room so that you can be near the baby and baby can get enough sleep.

I was thinking the same thing. Why is baby leaving your bedroom not an option. I get that that setup might be ideal for you, but it clearly isn't ideal for baby

My husband was a terrible snorer till he finally got diagnosed with sleep apnea. Now he sleeps with a CPAP and doesn't snore with it.
The sleep study isn't like it used to be (overnight in the sleep clinic, hooked up to machines). Instead they just send you hinge with a diagnostic CPAP that monitors your sleep.

Very worthwhile!

We're in Israel so this may be irrelevant, but here the machine itself was not fully covered. But it's a one-time expense (though we have had to replace the tubing once) so the cost was, in our opinion, very worthwhile. Keep in mind, sleep apnea isn't just annoying, it can be dangerous.

They have machines that you can bring home in the US as well. My father had it diagnosed with that.

Thanks for the replies.
My dh is also more on the heavy side, could that be causing the snoring or its more that he should get tested?
