Baby's voice hoarse from crying it out. Can this cause any damage?

Baby nodules: There is no proof that 'crying it out' causes permanent damage to the voice. However, you should make sure that baby is well-hydrated otherwise. This phase shouldn't last very long, though, so seek the advice of your pediatrician if you can't establish healthy sleep patterns with baby. ...Read more

A real problem: Trouble is that your anxiety is being perceived by the baby. She needs reassurance by your loving activity around her. Try to show that her environment is safe and if she is old enough to understand, try telling her that "mommy needs her sleep too". It is love that wins the day. Your anxiety must be extinguished----not easy to do but is the "art of motherhood". ...Read more

You may need to see: An ENT doctor, but visualizing the vocal cords requires sedation or anaesthesia. It would be worthwhile if your baby has any trouble breathing or feeding or appears to be in pain. I agree with pursuing an evaluation for reflux before an invasive procedure. ...Read more
