  • Could be he has a sore throat, or that his voice is changing all babies change that way

  • It could be the croup. The croup sounds very raspy almost like a barking sound. It's caused by swelling inside the throat that makes breathing difficult. I would call your pediatrician right away. It helps to run a cool mist vaporizer and to keep the air in his room cool. Keep us posted.
