  • Yup..it'll get worse. She's probably teething. My lo had her 1st at 4mo. They say some babies are actually born with teeth, although I've never heard or knew of one.

  • Sounds like she's teething. My daughter started at 2 weeks too and she still goes through about 10 bibs a day because of all the drool... We have no idea how she gets that much saliva

  • teething, and as babies get ready for solid foods, their bodies produce more saliva to assist with the swallowing process. I wouldn't worry about it. Invest in waterproof bibs! They can be a lifesaver!

  • It prolly ok. I think it means that he is teething. Some baby's can even be born with teeth.
