Managing Your Child’s Drooling Phase

Drooling is a normal stage in every baby’s development, and is most often associated with teething. Although many parents find this time to be really messy, you should know that excessive saliva production is actually healthy. For one, saliva washes away accumulated food and bacteria in your baby’s mouth. The enzymes found in saliva also break down carbohydrates, which helps in making the digestive system function optimally.

That’s not all—for infants that may suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease (a condition in which stomach acid rises from the stomach into the esophagus), saliva serves to lubricate the esophagus lining and neutralize the acidity.

Still, during a child’s drooling stage, your young one can often end up looking less than pristine. To manage this phase in your child’s development, consider these tips:

If your child is teething, you might expect him or her to drool excessively until all the baby teeth have come in and are in the proper positions. To prevent irritation around the mouth and cheeks from the constant drooling, consider applying an emollient ointment around these areas. The ointment can act as a barrier against irritation.

To avoid going through bib after bib while your child is in his or her drooling stage, make sure to use a high quality bib. Selecting a premium bib that’s fast-drying, stain-resistant, lightweight, and durable can be the best option for both your baby and you.
