OK I know I don't post here often but anyway. My DD is STILL DROOLING!!!! All of her teeth are in including the 2 year molars and I can't for the life of me figure it out! I do notice the more distracted she is with playing she will have a string of drool from her mouth and it's frustrating and gross! She has always been a heavy drooler through teething but I would think it would be done now. Am I just being too impatient and give it more time or should I be worried about this?

My 7 month old who is currently teething isn't even drooling at all. I makes no sense to me.

Even when teething Lucy was never a huge drooler so I'm no help sorry.

It may be a learned behavior. Maybe check with a Speech therapist to help strengthen her mouth,etc..

  1. Speech therapy A speech therapist can help your child learn to close the lips, move the saliva to the back of the mouth, and swallow. Learning to use a straw for fluids can improve drooling. Speech therapy is the preferred way to correct drooling. Helping your child learn the correct way to swallow solves the problem better than increasing the frequency of swallowing, although the latter does help a little. Improving posture and body position can also be helpful. While your child is taking speech therapy, medications are usually used for immediate improvement.

I am not sure. I hope you can figure something out.

Could it be that she is to busy playing and forgets to swallow??

I think it may be that she get's distracted. But even when she is talking she is drooling. I didn't realize that it could be linked to speech therapy. I will research some more and keep you all posted because I think it's crazy that an almost 3 year old drools more than my baby.

Another type of exercise we are using with A.J is whistling or anything he can blow into. Like blowing bubbles, using straws, or using a whistle.

I think I am defiantly going to ask at her 3 year appointment. Everything "dr google" says to do (straw drinking and blowing bubbles) she has already mastered. Maybe I will try the cloth thing. If I harp on her every five minutes about swallowing = no drool. Bah.
