Excessive Drooling: The first noticeable sign your baby’s mouth is starting to develop teeth, is an excess of saliva production. Most times you’ll be around to notice the stream of saliva leaking from the corners of their mouth, or you’ll notice a wet spot on the bedspread near their head, or on their clothing just below their neck when you visit in the morning. There are a few ways to deal with the drool monster. When you’re present, keep something nearby that will allow you to keep your baby’s mouth and chin saliva-free. It will be an all day battle, so be ready for it. Also, outfitting them with a bib will help you catch the messes you miss, and prevent chapped skin caused by the air-drying of saliva on the face.
