Baby snails???

Lately, I've seen these tiny small white creatures on my glass. They appear to be round and white and have little feelers like snails do. I do have Astrea snails in my tank. Are these baby snails or something else? I would take a picture but they are way too tiny.

Most likely they are not baby snails. Baby snails have a horrible survival rate in our aquariums as they will most likely end up as fish food.

I had a pyramid snail outbreak in my tank once I thought were baby snails.
In reality, can only sit and make assumptions without having a picture.
