Drooling starts very young, you have to remember that they really don't have control over thier swallowing muscles so the drooling is normal. Teething can start early but that does not mean the teeth will come through, sometimes they can start the symptoms of teething and it can be months and months before you see a tooth

Yup totally normal. My ds has gotten a lot better with his. Up until recently he was going through every bib in the house and tons of shirts a day. I couldn't keep up with the laundry. His whole entire shirt would be soaked within a matter of minutes.

You may want to keep a bib on her during the day to hep her shirts and also so you can dry her off. You're little one has rolls like my neighbors daughter did. Just try to keep the skin in between the rolls dry. Her daughter was on this drooling thing and got this awful yeast infection (that's what they called it) cause the water stayed in the rolls. It looked so painful. Her whole neck was red and blotchy. It just looked so painful

I'm right there with Jenna. I had to clean my sons neck throughout the day-very hard to get to- and if it started to get red I would just put aveeno on it and it would clear it right up. I also had to and still do put vaseline/moisture stick on his face from him drooling and chewing on his hands his face gets chapped very bad.

I jsut bought a stick that getber puts out. Helps the redness and chappiness in there checks.
THe raseberries are funny. YEsterday when we were in the doctors office this guy started looking at Payton and tlaking to her and telling her how pretty she was and at first she was smiling and giggling, then she did a wet raseberry. It was funny

I always found that putting baby lotion on when they get out of the bath (while they are still wet) really helps with the chapping!

That's pretty much how my son was. We kept a bib on him if we were going anyplace, so he didn't look like a slob. He's eight months now and doesn't drool much at all anymore.

Yeah, us too. We have A TON of bibs! I always say, there is no point in picking out a cute shirt for him, because all you will see is the bib anyway! He started drooling at 10 weeks and hasn't stopped (plus is a spitter-upper) and he still doesn't have teeth, so I have a feeling we will be in bibs for some time to come... great!

lol sad thing is... i only have 3 bibs! my mom bought me some disposable ones, but they suck, they are flimsy and if i leave it on her for more than a half an hour,she has it twisted sideways, and ripped and she tries to get her hand in her mouth and it gets caught under the bib, so she gets the bib in her mouth, and it tastes like paper, so then she screams... and we are just now getting to where i can put her in her swing, or new turtle play gym, or bouncey seat, and she will sit there content for longer than 5 minutes.. but with that bib, all hell breaks loose!

Yeah, the disposable ones are good for when she starts eating and you are in a restaurant (that is what I use them for). If it is just drool, get the cotton ones, they work best. Or, if it really bad, get the terry cloth ones with the plastic on the back. Target (not sure if you have that store) carries the cotton bibs and you can buy them in a 3 pack pretty cheap. 3 bibs will never be enough... you better stock up, ha ha! I think we have somewhere near 20-25 bibs!
