What causes baby to lose voice frequently?

My 6 month old baby has lost her voice 4 times in the last 3 months. Each time she does there seems to be no cause for it. It doesnt progress into a cold she just gets better after a couple of days. We dont let her cry herself to sleep or longer than a minute. What could be the problem?

Hi...by what you quote I feel that your kid is having laryngitis or inflammation of the voice box frequently along with cough and cold. This is common in kids who exert their voice during crying or making sounds in this age. But if the cough reflex is normal you need not worry. If the kid is unable to cough also along with loss of voice then it requires evaluation. If this is not the case you can be rest assured.
