In brief: Babies

At 4 months of age, babies tend to drool (saliva comes out of mouth) and they love to put their hands in their mouths.
It is normal for them to do this. This will likely continue to occur for several more months - getting worse when they start teething. It's all very normal.

Agree, babies are explorers and avid scientists, carefully and meticulously exploring and examining everything they have access to. Talk to her, sing to her, take her with you in a sling, expose her to music, art, the outdoors, other babies...
