My baby snores while sleeping. Could it be because she is not breathing correctly?

Newborn babies do have noisy breathing which seems like they are snoring. The nasal passages of the babies are very small so sometimes it appears that they are snoring. However, many times snoring is also caused by stuffy nose in babies.
