    Varuna there are some nose strips available in the market that he has to place on his nose while sleeping.. it is a small thin trip which opens up the nose and ensures smooth breathing which reduces snoring.. search for snoring strips or something on the internet and you will find one :high5: :high5:

    I’ll tell you what I do. If he is snoring through the nose, I’ll pinch and close the nose. HE will wake up a bit, and no more snores for a while. If he is lying flat, I hit him with my elbow gently and make him sleep to the sides. If it still doesn’t stop, I put pillow around his face, and mask the sound. If nothing else works, I throw him out of the room, after carefully reminding myself not to smother him with the pillow.

    Make him sleep on the sides, this helps too. Else nasal strips are there that might help.

      Ha ha ha ha.

      So as soon as I read this question, I knew I had to answer, but before answering, I read Nupoor’s answer and laughed my heart out. I showed your answer to my husband – Ye dekho, I am not the only one! :rofl: :rofl:

      I did the same, blocked his nose when his snoring was at its peak and he woke up huffing and struggling to remain alive. He still tells everyone that she is just putting it on Snoring. She really wants to kill me. :rofl: :rofl:

      Believe me, I have made him wear those strips. It does help sometimes, but most of the times, either he has to lie opposite to me or just sleep in other room. :waa: :waa:

    I make him sleep on the sides or put an ear bud which is available in medicine stores.

    :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: you gals wow.. :jaiho:
    I have sound sleep talent, I sleep before he snores and then even I can bury down with earthquake in a sleep know :hihi:
    But yeah usually changing sides and shaking a bit helps to decrease extent of noise, my daughter does this now as she cannot stand daddy snores :rofl: and she is the one waking me in my sleep “Mumma daddy is behaving like a monster” :hihi: :hihi: too funny

    Thankfully my husband doesnt snore. But if I have to sleep in a room where people are snoring, then I mostly put on my earphones and play some soothing instrumental music!

    Jokes apart, really loud snoring in the absence of a cold can be the sign of obstruction to breathing during sleep, and pinching someone’s nose can only make it worse for them by making them gasp for air. This is called obstructive sleep apnea. About half of loud snorers might have this condition, which is related to high blood pressure and heart problems.
    Sometimes some abnormalities of the nasal passage can cause snoring, these might be correctable by surgical procedures. Other ways to help snoring are cutting down on alcohol, reducing weight, and as mentioned above, changing sleep position and using nasal strips. However, it is worthwhile getting checked out by a doctor (preferably a lung specialist) who can determine your risk of sleep apnea using some questionnaires and test one for it (using a sleep study). Treatment of sleep apnea involves wearing a mask hooked up to machine which delivers air at pressure and prevents obstruction from occurring.
    I see very, very obese people in my practice everyday and send them all for evaluation of sleep apnea. Sometimes one may not be overweight but having a short thick neck can do that too.
    Sorry to dampen the mood here, but this is an issue I deal with all the time and also do research related to.

      Thanks for this super information.
      My husband has high blood pressure. I think this might be a possible reason for snore. I shall get his check up done.
      Thanks a lot :smile:

    Buy ear plugs, they will muffle the sound of snoring. :smile:
