My baby started drooling at about that age too and I have to constantly change his sheets where his face is as it gets rather wet from all the drool!!! (he's a tummy sleeper) I think it's just natures way of getting him/her ready for solids!...as you need saliva to eat to swallow etc....so about 3 months of age their bodies start producing saliva!...doesn't necessarily mean they are teething! ( just my observations after having 3 babies)

babies drool all the time not just when they r teething, they just drool more....most drool till about 12-15 months as they learn the art of swallowing ....this is what my nurse told me anyway.....could be other reasons?

It could be the start of teething, my son started to drool around three months and is now six and a half months and still has no teeth. My son didn't have any noticable pain till about 5 1/2 -6 months, and the doctor recommended Hylands teething tablets, thye are an all natural little white tablet that dissolves right when you put it in there mouth.....they now recommend not using the baby oragel and that kind of stuff as they now say that it actually can make the gums harder and then in the end it hurts more for the teeth to come through the gums....good luck........he is precious

i was told that babies who drool alot have healthy gums and teeth later in life.. its most likely all a part of teething.. i know some kids who if they're put on the floor for 5 minutes they'll be in their own pool of drool.. try keeping a bib on ur lil one while he is awake..
