Lil Mans Voice is Hoarse

My 5mo old lil man woke up from his nap with a hoarse voice. He knows how to fall asleep on his own so he doesn't scream when I put him down for naps or bed. He dosn't have a fever or any other medical problems. I feel so bad when he tries to talk to me and it sounds like he's been screaming at a rock concert. Is it a wait and see kind of thing or needs appt. His 6mo well baby appt is on the 23 but I don't want him to suffer for that long, but he doesn't seem to be in any pain either. Have any of your lil angels had a hoarse voice this young? What did you do about it?

:) it's okay mommy.....I would talk to my doctor first, him being so little and all but if he doesn't know for sure ask him if a two- four ounce bottle with alittle lemon juice or peppermint would be okay for him. just enough to change water color a little bit and only give about an ounce at a time.......
