drool and choking


my LO is 2 months +1 week old. recently hes been drooling a lot, and in the last few days he seems to be drooling even more, it keeps making him choke. i try and wipe it out his mouth before this happens but it seems to just build up again quite quickly.

any ideas what could be making him drool? anything i should be looking for in his mouth?

Ooh, I'd like to know the answer to this too. my LO is 10 weeks old and he's doing the same. It's scary when he chokes as he looks so scared.

I think that it might be early signs of teething, dylan started doing that around 2 months and had 2 teeth by the time he was 3 months! It does seem to get better once the teeth come through

definitely teething - Bobby drools a ridiculous amount when he's teething, and he still chokes occasionally. I wouldn't worry about trying to wipe it out, he will learn to swallow it.

Teeth may still not come in for months, and the drooling may stop and then start up again. It was the only real sign we had for Bobby (other than a couple days before he cut his first tooth he vomited a few times), they say they can also get red cheeks + green, loose stools but he never had that.

Bobby had his bottom 2 tooth come in first at around 6.5 months, his second around 7 months, and he's just now working on a top tooth

TBH I never had any other signs with dylan, just got a sharp nip one day when I was feeding him, I think that appart from what bekkie says above, some babies get hard lumps under the gum where the teeth are going to come through and can be a bit grumpy and not sleep as well but as I say we didn't have any of that

I think its usually the bottom two front ones that come through first with most babies but I guess every baby is different so it might not be for your wee one
