My 11 month old has a virus and sore throat, took her to the Dr. they gave her something for the virus but she is not drinking milk or eating anything because it hurts her to swallow. Is there anything that I can give her that will help sooth her throat?

  • Can an 11 month old gargle? I've never tried it, but I'm sure I wouldn't even be able to teach my 3 year old how to gargle.

  • Have her swallow anything very cold. Popcicles are the best Idea I think
