Q.

Baby with sore throat?

I think my 11 month old LB has a sore throat. The reason I think so is because I started with one on Monday, but I feel fine otherwise. He is also fine otherwise, no temp or runny nose, he is in a good mood, and sleeping well, just not eating like he normally does.

What can you do for an 11 month old with a sore throat?

You have given an excellent description of your baby's present condition. Of importance is that he is happy, does not have a fever, sleeps well and has no signs of having a cold. He is just not eating as well as he normally does. This could be due to him teething or some other cause as your baby seems to be in good health.
