my baby is almost 8 weeks old and just recently has been super fussy and has this really raspy whiney cry I have never heard before like his throat is sore or something. I cant really see any redness or anything and his glands dont really feel swollen but its hard for me to know what they normally feel like since they are hiding under his second chin LOL. I gave him baby tylenol and it worked a miracle. Sound like a sore throat? and if so can it wait until his appointment next week (no fever) or should I try to get him in to see his doc soonerAnswer Question
He is only eight weeks, you should give your doctor a call and describe the symptoms, i know nobody wants to be over alarmed at every little thing, and i admit when my son was a newborn i spent one to many minutes calling up the doctor. But, he was always there ready with an answer and advice...I was never told not to call. At around 2 years old my son came down with a raspy cough (sounded like a seal or dog cough) and loud breathing...His behaviour hadn't changed much, and it didn't make me too concern but it got worse at night and i gave the doctor a call, he heard the breathing over the phone and urged me to go the the ER. My son had croupe and it can be very dangerous...sometimes fatal. Better safe than Sorry!
