Rarely, there can be an overproduction of saliva that results in overflow of saliva through the corner of the mouth. If that's the case, your pcp can recommend some medications to help. If it's just positional, get a supportive pillow that will help the person sleep with a closed mouth. ...Read more

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
