Drooling And Teething- See What's Happening With Your Baby

When your child begins to teethe, often around 6 months of age, you will likely see your baby drooling a lot. There are no front lower teeth to hold back the saliva stream, and the body naturally increases saliva in a child’s mouth to prepare for the healthy eruption of teeth. Saliva has mild antibacterial properties that help to keep your child’s mouth healthier, and as more teeth erupt the levels of saliva can be expected to increase. It might be hard to imagine not being aware of excessive drooling, or difficult to even try to swallow with your mouth open, but for kids who have decreased muscle tone around the mouth and other problems this is their reality. Drooling And Teething- See What's Happening With Your Baby

Your baby's drooling and teething: What you need to know 

Kids develop at different rates with different levels of efficiency, and sometimes facial and neck muscles are not as strong as typically found at certain ages or there is a lack of coordination between the muscle groups responsible for stopping drooling. This can happen without a major health condition as a cause. Your toddler's drooling and teething typically subsides by then. If your child is an older toddler and still excessive drooling and teething without any other known health issues, it might be time to take a closer look.
