  • what?
    No, that is not why they drool.

  • they drool because they are teething.. they may move up and down but the drooling is not an indication that they are moving up. just that they are moving!. :)

  • Moving back up?? I've never heard that one.
    The reason some may say that is because children can start drooling up to 2 months before the tooth makes an appearance.
    Just remember that frozen items may actually hurt more. A COOL item helps - not frozen.

  • My first son drooled enough to soak through a shirt in 10 minutes while he was teething, and that never happened.
