Yes: If your baby has a throat infection, it may cause him to be less interested in drinking milk. If he has already been examined and is not thought to have anything more serious, a dose of Acetaminophen as recommended by your doctor may help to alleviate the pain. Sometimes feeding smaller, but more frequent amounts may be better to give your baby a break, but to maintain hydration.
