So Alayna has not been a drooly baby at all until the past two days she has been drooling everywhere! like enough to soak her clothes and drip down my back while Im holding her. Shes also been fussier than usual. Is there another reason babies may start drooling crazy amounts and being fussy besides teething? Isnt 2mnths way too early for teething?

I have wondered this too. DD was a drooly mess all the time and she didn't get her 1st tooth until she was 11 months old. We began just putting a bib on her all the time so that she wouldn't soak thru her clothes. You should see- every pic of her the 1st year of her life, she was wearing a bib. Mind you, I made sure that they all color- coordinated with her cute outfits

Her brother seems to be prepping to follow in her footsteps. His tongue is always out like a little dog and he already blows spit bubbles

I'm not sure. I was just about to post something sorta like this.

Not to hijack your thread but Marshall has been a little fussier than normal and is chewing on his hands ALOT! He also chews on his bottle nipple if he's not eating it. I was wondering if he was starting to teeth or if he had just discovered his hands?

DS1 drooled like crazy from 3-6 months. We always had a bib on him and he would soak through them. His first tooth didnt come in until he was one lol so I dont think his early drooling was related to teething at all

Hmm ok so its not neccessarily connected to teething. And shes been doing the same thing chewing on everything that comes near her mouth. I just read that its around this time that the salivary glands are developing so that explains the drool.. maybe they are fussy because they are covered in drool and cant figure out why? lol she has definitely found her hands. she is chewing on them constantly!

I just got my weekly email from babycenter.com and was wondering about Kingstons drool too I'm not sure what the fussiness is about but here's an article that addresses the drool!! (under the 2 month 2 week old tab)

Break out the bibs
Your baby's salivary glands have been working since she was in utero, but you may notice that she's started to drool. She's also putting everything in her mouth and producing more saliva than she can swallow.

This doesn't mean that your baby's teething just yet, though — that probably won't happen for another two weeks, at least. The vast majority of babies sprout their first tooth between 4 and 7 months of age. If your baby's an early developer, you may see her first white cap, usually one of the bottom two middle teeth, as early as 3 months. (And in rare cases, a baby's first tooth is visible at birth!)

Many parents permanently affix a bib to their baby about now to catch the drool. Just remember to take it off when your baby sleeps to prevent strangulation.

The good news is that your baby's drool coats toys and other objects with disease-preventing proteins. That's fortunate — since she'll continue to explore anything she can get her hands on.

Vivi is doing the same thing!!! I can't tell if she is hungry or just into her hands. They always are in her mouth and she's drooling all over them. She also is eating more but it's taking longer because she keeps trying to put her hands in her mouth or she just plays with the bottle. We are thinkin of trying the stage 2 nipple for the bottle because it flows faster and maybe she's sick of waiting for it to come out but I really don't know

Salivary glands and also reflux babies tend to have more saliva in their mouths!

Julius discovered his thumb the other day, He's been drooling a lot lately as well, I read somewhere that the drool also helps to start getting their little digestive track ready and primed for solids later on.
