Couple of things: Make sure you brush the top of your tongue well to remove the hair-like projections and make sure you drink plenty of water during the day. Stay away from alcohol based mouthwashes (regular listerine) right before bed and and maybe try a saliva substitute before bed. Keeping the oral tissues hydrated and lubricated should help. ...Read more

Sick baby.: How old is your sick baby? If you are talking about a baby younger than about six months, I would seek medical help now. You are right to be worried about getting fluids in. Babies can get dehydrated quickly. Try a Popsicle, teaspoons of some liquid, ice chips, anything really. If you don't have success right away getting fluids in, I would seek immediate medical attention. ...Read more

Sore throat /sleep: Consider reflux and sleep apnea. Reflux at night would cause the sore throat as the acid refluxes into the throat. You can take ranitidine and omeprazole. For that and when you sleep elevate the head of bed with a pillow under the mattress. Also check for H pylori, a bacteria associated with reflux. Sleep apnea would make you sleepy during the day.

Doctor can examine: New throat pain can be from strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies.
