My son drools alot. He's been doing this since he was 2 months old. He is now 6 months old and is soaking his bibs, we go through about 10 bibs a day. He has not gotten any teeth yet. Should i be worried about this and do any other babies drool this much?

I would say it is very normal. Our baby drools endlessly, he cut his first tooth last week and his second will be through any day now. As far as going through multiple bibs, can I suggest "mum 2 mum" bibs? The website is they cater for different countries, USA, Australia, UK etc. The bibs are waterproof, and you can get different types (there's even one that covers the arms). Since we bought some, our boy can wear one all day (just taking off for nap times) and not soak through onto his top. A great buy, they are plain, and come in different colors. Worth a look.

Kaylin soaks every thing.......doesn't concern me. probably a precursor to teeth.

liam is an early teether, he's been teething since probably 3 months and now has 4 teeth at 6 1/2 months, that's what the drolling is from and it's completely normal. it was a non-stop thing for months and it won't stop either haha, well it calms down once the teeth start coming in but it's nothing to worry about. some advice though, invest in some resolve stain remover, instead of going through 10 bibs a day, which i was doing, just resolve his clothes before washing them so the drool stains come out. oh and teething rings! when his gums start swelling it means teeth are coming soon and a cold teething ring feels good on baby's gums :] hope i helped!

I would recommend calling the local registered nurse line (In Calgary we have healthlink) and they will give you advice rather then wasting time in a clinic...

My daughter doesn't drool very much..

I don't think that is abnormal. It may be accredited to Teething also some babies take a little more to register there bodies as far as how much saliva they need to have and it just takes a little longer to regulate. If you are really concerned you should ask you PCP but I don't think it is that big of a deal.
