Sore throat or just making noise?

I was wondering how to tell if your baby has a sore throat. My 9mo DS has been making this 'glunk' noise and swallows really hard. I'm not sure if it's a sore throat or him just making noise (he's experimenting with his voice a lot more now.)

  • He's probably just figured out that he can do whatever it is he is doing... I wouldn't worry about it unless he starts showing signs of actually being sick like not wanting to eat or running a fever.

  • ... however... you are the mom. If your intuition is saying there is something more going on then take him in to get checked out. No harm there =]

  • i think a sore throat would be accompanied by a cough or some crying cuz it hurts. if he doesnt seem in pain i wouldn't worry about it. if he starts running a fever or coughing or having a lot of mucus take him to the dr
