  • It sounds normal. Some kids drool a lot and some kids don't, same thing with spitting up. My first ds was a big drooler. My second ds was a big spitter upper. He spit up after just about every feeding until he was almost a year old. He was happy and weight gain was great so Dr. said it was just a laundry problem, not a health problem :-)

  • yup its normal. Its got much to do with teething. Just carry around LOTS of bibs and a couple of changes.

  • drooling = teething, spit up = reflux (peeks at 3 to 6 months old)... once he is on solids, i recommend rice cereal, he should stop spitting up soon. i am dealing with that with my son as well.
