  • loss of interest in eating, or may seem irritated while trying to eat like they're in pain. Best way to tell is to take him or her to the Doc.

  • Keep in mind babies don't develop the receptors for Strep until they are about 2. If a baby has a sore throat at 3 months, there are going to be other symptoms too. Like running nose, coughing, congestion, fever. If the baby appears sick take it to the doctor.
