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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: Sore throats, coughing and congestion are usually caused by viruses...Which go away on their own. Well appearing infants without fever do not need to see their pediatrician.

A variety of causes: Hoarseness in infants can be from a variety of causes. Babies can have reflux and chronic irritation of the airway from the spitting up can cause hoarseness. Viral illness can cause short-term hoarseness. Some babies are born with a paralyzed vocal cord.
