  • yeah she might be teething. My son drools a lot when he's teething and makes bubble totally normal.

  • well, drooling, a lot of drooling is normal. But she is pretty young for teething, although it's not impossible. Is she choking on it? That would really be my only concern.

  • no she isn't chocking at all she just spits it all out when the bubbles come up

  • sounds absolutely normal. Some babies drool more than others :)

  • Yes, totally normal. Get a couple of teething bibs (they are thicker than regular and have something plastic inside), and watch for s rash on the chin from the moisture. We had to keep drying off DD so her chin wouldn't get all red.

  • The drool factory has started up, its nothing to do with teething, that is a big myth. Just get some cute bibs! :)
