My baby has been drooling like crazy too and I asked my doctor about it at his 2 month checkup. He said he may be beginning to teeth, but he said just cus hes teething doesnt mean he is going to get a tooth right away. He said they can teeth for months before the first tooth finally comes through.

My son is 9 weeks old and loves to make spit bubbles! And when he coos and smiles at the same time it sounds like he's gurgling with his spit. He almost sounds flemmy in a way, but it's all the spit in the back of his throat.lol It's so cute though.

I think all babies start to drool at about 2 to 3 months. All 3 of mine have! I think they start drooling because thier saliva glands have started to work properly. The bubbling does look so funny. My Youngest son does it all the time! My oldest son was always packed off to nursery with about 5 bibs because he drooled so much and as a consequence his clothes had to be changed so many times and he started to get sore under his chin.

spit bubbles galore here! she's 10wks. old and has been doing this for several weeks now. doesn't make for a pretty face esp. when she wakes up in the morn. with it dried on her face. just thankful it's not winter so she isn't dealing with chapped lips.

my son is almost 11 weeks and has been drooling like crazy the last month if she is chewing on her fingers most likely it is the begining of teething after 2 weeks i noticed 2 little white bumps on his gums and guess what they were teeth lol he hasent broke them through yet butt by the time hes 4 months most likely he will so check the gums and feel around most the time they start on bottom and then on top

My Daughter Skyee, is 7 weeks old, when she first begun to blow ( siliva) bubbles I thought it was some sort of reaction to the grip water or cold medications..however, as those things subsided..I realised that it was a natural form of baby expression. She has a habit of sucking on her hand .. the droll gets the better of her mouth and cheeks...I will hazarrd to say it's a normal phenomenon for babies at this age.

My son is 11 weeks old. For the past 2 weeks or so, he has been blowing bubbles and drooling. He seems to love to put his hands in a fist position and suck on his fist. My friend's baby started teething at 3 months, so anything is possible.

It's very likely that she is teething; it can take quite a while for a tooth to come in. My little girl is 9 wks and she's been drooling for at least 3 wks now. When she starts to fuss and I can't find a reason for the fussiness, she seems to enjoy gnawing on my finger with her little gums. It must make them feel a bit better.
