Hi, My 10 week old baby and his brother too at the same age dribble sooo much, he goes through so many bibs and changes of clothes a day and i was wondering if other babies the same age dribble as much??? My eldest son didn't get his first tooth till 7 months..

i thought the same thing haha. but then i thought he was way too young to cut teeth.



Anthony has decided that he like to suck on my neck and deposit as my dribble as possible on my clothing. at least his face stays dryish

From my reading, I understand babies typically start teething between 4 and 6 months! And my niece got her first teeth at 4 months! ....then actually started loosing them at 4 years too....she is now 6 and already lost 8 baby teeth!

My 12 week old isnt drooling too badly but has been gnawing her hand to bits for past 3 weeks. i actually posted a question about teething on here earlier as i didnt think babies started teething till about 6 months. i give her a teething ring which has been in the fridge but is tricky as she cant hold it yet. She is starting to get really grizzly tho so might get her something for pain relief, will decide when i get some advice from the circle.

Well thank God my little man isn't the only one! I started wondering if he'd be the first 8 week old in history to cut teeth!!! :)

My daughter is 10 weeks and it is drool and bubbles. Her bibs are huge so I don't like to put them on her. Any suggestions on what to do?!?! Are we supposed to give them a teething ring?!?!

My son doesn't drool a lot. Just the bubbles. My daughter didn't drool a lot when she was a baby too.

My son Chase has been dribbling for a few weeks now and is just 10wks old. What I'd like to know, is why he dribbles so much. I am a first time mam..

Yes it is normal. They begin to create more saliva at this stage in preparation for when they will be eating solid foods. They drool because they don't know how to swallow it. Also it will keep their mouth moist for when they start teething. Don't worry, buy more bibs :)

Nola has started to do this a bit, not to excess, but she blows the little bubbles and when you have been holding her your shoulder or wherever her mouth has been is soaked. She's now 11 weeks.

My son is 8 wks, he dribbles only when he's laying on his stomach and it's so excessive! >
