  • Lemon is a good idea. Also maybe a popsicle or something cold. They have popsicles that are 100% fruit juice so you wouldn't be hyping him up with sugar and the cold might help sooth his throat. If you breast feed then that is always a help, too, for comfort and soothing if nothing else. Good luck, sick kiddos just break your heart, don't they?

  • Not saying this is it, but I know strep is going around with a vengeance right now. At 9 months you can't give any honey, which is very soothing to the throat. The best you can probably do is a little fresh lemon juice in warm water.

  • Childrens Motrin is an excelent anti-inflamatory.
