My 5 month old baby is drooling a lot today and even now while she's sleeping, is it because she's teething or something I should be concerned?

Not necessarily: It is good to be observant and ready if anything comes up. However, babies have no social conscience and thus no inherent need to control their drool. They do a lot as babies but eventually decide to contain it. I see babies who never seem to "teethe" but end up with a full set. ...Read more

My 3 month old baby randomly sucks when nothing is in his mouth?? And is drooling a lot, what can this mean?

My 3 month old baby randomly sucks when nothing is in his mouth?? And is drooling a lot, what can this mean?

Self soothing: Babies are driven to suck as a survival tool. If they didn't, they wouldn't learn to feed as a newborn when they have never experienced hunger-ever. Sucking is rewarded by pleasure sensations in the brain, and an infant with few capabilities can turn to it for pleasure at any time while awake (& partly asleep). It is why nail biting, gum chewing and smoking are difficult habits to break. ...Read more

Good day. I have twin prem baby girls, 3 and half months old. Can they start teething so young? Signs are itchy gums, spit bubbles, drooling, chewing

Teething???: A babies lips and oral cavity are lined with pleasure sensing nerve endings that help promote interest in feeding. It is a survival feature. I would not assume that their chewing/mouthing of objects means anything more. Little babies drool because they have no social conscience that drives them to hold it in. ...Read more

Is it true you aren't supposed to take babies out in public indoor places til they are two months?

My 7mth old has had a temperature (102-103) for two days now. Took her to ER and was told there was nothing wrong that it was normal for babies. Is it?

My 7mth old has had a temperature (102-103) for two days now. Took her to ER and was told there was nothing wrong that it was normal for babies. Is it?

No, not "normal": A fever to 102 -103 is not normal, but it may not be dangerous. It is common for babies to have fairly high fevers in response to viruses. Hopefully they did a good work up to check for bacterial causes of illness. If they did and they didn't find anything, then your baby probably has a virus and just needs time to get better. If the fever doesn't go away in the next couple days, go back! ...Read more

That may loosen the scales for her. This usually goes away after a couple of months even without treatment. ...Read more

Why do babies always stick everything in their mouth? Also my son is almost two, is it normal for him to still be doing it?

Of the 5 senses that: Allow us to explore & understand the world, what touches our lips/ mouths in a pleasurable, fulfilling way is one of the first. If that's so rewarding, why not try other things to see if they're as enjoyable? Developmentally, from 6 mos.-3 yrs is typical for mouthing objects.
