2-month old drooling a lot!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Is this normal? It just started a week ago when she started gnawing on her fists. I had to change 3 shirts the other day!

She's not teething already is she? :

Well my ds got his first tooth just before two months, so it is definitely possible. PLus, he can teethe on and off for months before he gets a tooth.

My ds started drooling at 2 1/2 months and is just getting his bottom two teeth in at 7 months. He was drooling on and off the entire time.

I'd say teething, although it could be a long time before you actually see anything.

It could be teething. My ds just cut his first tooth last week. He's three months old and has been chewing/drooling for about a month. I was shocked to see a tooth already!

my 3 month old has also been drooling for a month but no teeth yet. i wouldn't worry about it, it seems normal. i don't know how long it will take for him to get his teeth but it seems like it can be soon or it can take several months.

well if it is from teething, is she in pain already? She's generally fussy, so I wouldn't know if it's from teething or something else. I have Hyland's teething tablets.

You could try the tablets if she's fussy and chewing on fingers or fist a lot. It's sort of trial and error in guessing the causes of fussiness sometimes. My ds#2 is a drool faucet -- started at 2 months and is now 7.5 and counting. No teeth yet, though.

Invest in bibs. Lots and lots of bibs. They'll come in handy down the road for messy eating.

We've got a drool monster here too.. ds is 2 months. It's so hard to tell if they're teething or not. Like somebody said, try the different teething remedies and see if they help (if the baby is fussy.)

I have a 2 month old drooler too. I haven't noticed any swollen gums or pain associated with it.

She does have a tiny tip of a back molar visible, and has for a very long time (maybe since birth even). Is that weird?
