My dd is 4 and over the last couple weeks iv started to notice a few things that seem to link with her ears nose and throat I have doctors appointment for next week but just wondered if anyone had any advice.
When she breathes through her nose it sound as though she needs to blow it ill have her blow it and it's still the same,
When she talks she sounds like she has a bit of a blocked nose but doesn't
She has started to snore rather loudly,
when she eats she has started to hack/clear her throat,
and I'm not sure if it's just her being a typical 4 year old but sometimes I have to really shout or tap her if I'm trying to get her attention, and also I was talking to her the other day there was no noise background and she said had me repeat what I was saying 4 or 5 times.
Any advice is appreciated, thanks .

My advice would be to go to the GPs and get an appt with the ENT specialists - but it seems you already have. I'd also ask for an audiology appt too. they are often linked, but needn't necessarily be and it sounds as if she is really struggling with hearing you.
