  • Could be. They drool for a long time, long before teeth ever start poppin up.

  • it is possible she's teething, but they just generally drool a lot. Keep a bib on her so she doesn't soak through all her clothes or get irritation from being wet all the time.

  • My son is just under 3 months old and he is drooling like crazy and blowing bubbles with his drool. His gums are also white in some areas. my mom told me that means hes teething.

  • My son started teething at about 8 weeks, he got his first tooth at 5 months so all that whole time before was the drool and red cheeks and discomfort. I found that massing the gums with my finger really helped, using gel, something cold?

  • Sorry... she probably is teething! My son started drooling like a friggin faucet around TWO months & it didn't stop until he was almost 1. Now he's almost 2 and the 2-year molars are coming in... and sure enough, more drool!
