My son was born 5 weeks early but has always been a very healthy, happy, and hyperactive child. He's never had an ear infection. According to his doctors he is way ahead of his peers development wise who were born full term. However, my son at times snores very loud. I also noticed that he drools even though he has had a full set of teeth since he was 15 months. The doctor says that his enlarged tonsils are the culprit. He's my only child and I really dont know what to expect. could any mom who has been here before help me out?

That seems a bit young. Both of my kids snored and never once did the doctor say to take out the tonsils.
If they are seriously enlarged then he should have them removed, but otherwise I would seek a second opinion.
