i have a son of 2 months 1/2 and he does bubble with his saliva ...why is that?

Just to clear up a common misconception... Drooling and blowing raspberries (spit bubbles) are not necessarilly a sign of teething. Babies don't actually start to produce saliva until about 8-12 weeks. When this happens they don't yet know how to swallow properly (that is, swallow things that are not right at the back of their mouths like nipple or teet) so they tend to blow it out the front :) It's also part of exploring their own sounds and sensations...

Have fun! It can be truely hillarious ;)

My daughter is 11mo old and still does this (started at about 2 1/2mo) :) I love it and do it right back at her and we laugh about it lol. She did used to do it more though and it makes me sad she doesn't do it as much now. She's got other things on her mind though now, like walking!
