What causes voice hoarseness in babies?

Hi my name is Quinesha. I have a 6 month old son; he s about 26in in height and about 20lbs. Today I noticed that his voice is hoarse, and I am worried about what may be causing this. He isn t acting differently or crying like he s in pain, and his temperature is at 99.7 degrees F.

Hi, you need not to worry at all. This is a normal thing. Since, its a boy, his voice will become thicker as he grows. In some babies this occurs late and in some earlier. Wishing your child good health.
