He doesn't have a temperature, and is feeding plenty, but it sounds so painful, he can hatdly make a sound!

Is there anythoing I can do to ease it?

does he use a dummy?, that can help as it keeps saliva moving around in the mouth and keep his throat moist

He does, also UI have Radiohead's Creep playing over and over - it is settling him

Poor little mite. Its so sad when you think they might be poorly. I suggest lots of little feeds to keep his throat from getting too dry. My 3month old ds has his first cold at the moment and yesterday i just cuddled him most of the day. Think that really helped.

does his throat look sore (red?)

if it continues, might be worth swinging past the GP just to check all is ok (maybe at your 6 week check up?)
