Does excessive drooling mean a tooth is on it's way shortly?

  • Its a good sign for teething but not for sure soon. the first tooth can take a long time to finally cut through.

  • It means one is moving. It still may be months before it shows up.

  • my son has always been an excessive drooler (4-5 bibs/day, 2-3 shirts/day). He didn't get his first tooth until he was over 8 months old. All of his grandmas were sure he would have teeth by 4 months (he started to drool by then, and continues to drool excessively)- they were all waay wrong. I'd just recommend getting bibs with strong velcro. And munchkins (things to put frozen fruit into). They help A LOT with teething- but are a bit messy (the mess is totally worth it).

  • My daughter started teething at 4 months, drooling like a grown man sleeping. But she didn't get her first tooth until she was 11 months old.

  • I felt of his gums and on the top left there is a lump but no tooth has broke through. I don't know if that's one or not?

  • My son is a year old and most of the time we still have to put a bib on him. He just drools all the time! I have noticed there is more when he is teething, but some kids are just droolers.
