I don't usually use any foods besides breastmilk or formula at that age, so I'm not sure. For drooling, some babies drool for months before teeth erupt, so it could be soon or it could be a while. :-)
Both my kids started the drooling and chewing at around 4 months. DD got her teeth after her first bday and DS got his first the day he turned 6 months. So it could happen soon or it could happen months from now. But the drooling is completely normal.
In vain he thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts.
Drooling doesn't necessarily mean teeth. It's a defense mechanism. Babies drool so that anything in their mouth comes out. It prevents choking. And he's too young for any kind of solids. No solids until 6 months. And cereal is crap. Infants can't digest it, which is why it causes so many issues with so many babies.
well my daughter never drooled or whined when she got teeth she chewed her fingers alot and i thing its time for your baby to starth cutting teeth my lil cousin is 5months with 4 teeth so you never know
All of my kids drooled. My older 3 didn't get teeth until 11.5-14 months. My youngest is only 4 months old but she drools too. I love the Juicy Couture bibs. They are cute and super absorbent.
No idea about formula, I breastfeed - but babies should not be getting solids before at least 6 months.

Per our pedi, we offered DS cereal around 4 months so we could slowly introduce it since there were concerns for food allergies. He wasn't ready for it and thrust the spoon away. He didn't start taking solids until he was 6 months.
My DS is almost 5 months old. He's been drooling a lot since about 3 months old. No teeth yet. I just started giving him a mixture of 1 TBSP rice cereal with 2 TBSP breastmilk in the evenings. He eats it by spoon and seems to like it. He makes very little mess. It doesn't bother him digestively either.
