hi, we have been sleep training our 9 month old for the past 7 days by putting her in her crib and teaching her to self soothe. we just check and console her every 5 min till she falls asleep. the concern i have is that she s been crying alot and now her voice sounds raspy and hoarse and seems like she s losing her voice. what should we do and should we be concerned and take her to see physician? I have been offering fluids as much as she can tolerate even in the middle of the night.
You can take her to a child specialist and see whether she has any physical problem for which she is crying.If not so, she might have been feeling unsecure or lonely.As she is over 9 months now,give her healthy foods including soft dal-rice,chapati ,fruits like banana,apple, fig etc.,milk, baby food.she should not stay hungry.
For her voice, give her a sweet ayu. powder Yashtimadhu,a pinch from time to time ,also give honey.
Take care of her,bye.
