ok ever since my lo was born shes had a croaky voice. i didnt think anything of it at the time but everytime we see mil she points it out and says stuff like "oh shes got a rough voice" "shes gonna have a rough voice when shes starts talking" etc. I dont know if it's because mil has been pointing it out since day dot that im actually starting to notice. it sounds like she has phlem in her throat and sometimes her voice is a bit rattley. i looked it up and heres a good description:
dysphonia, which is a hoarse, breathy or rough voice; or a voice with excessive 'glottal fry' (a 'croaky' characteristic that very old voices sometimes have, but which is not normal in young voices)
Is it normal or should i take lo to docs? thanks ladies xxx
My friend has all girl triplets, and one always had a hoarse voice/cry when she was a baby, and they wondered what it meant. Now at 20 months and talking her voice is lower, and raspier then her sisters. when the other two scream they have a high pitch squeal, and she can't get as high as them.
There is nothing wrong with her, thats just how her voice is.
