toddler  why


Question by  booradleysfriend (22)

Why is my toddler drooling?

He drools all the time.


Answer by  katdog (294)

Babies and toddlers are constantly drooling. It is nothing to worry about. He could be cutting teeth, or his saliva glands could be maturing. Little kids aren't good at swallowing their own spit.

Usually that means that he is about to cut some teeth. Make sure that you have a bid on him all the time. If that's not the case check with your doctor, he might have a tongue or throat problem. This is not serious but should be check out by a professional.

Drooling in a toddler or young child is normally caused by teething or even an ear infection. If it continues contact your doctor to rule out a virus.

He could be teething, and this would cause excessive drool. He could also have difficultly breathing through his nose and is breathing through his mouth instead.


Answer by  Riley (765)

Your toddler might be cutting a tooth or teeth. A toddler who is constantly drooling could have poor oral motor skills. When a child has excessive saliva and the ability to swallow isn't developed enough this leads to drooling. At your next well visit, talk with the doctor about this problem if it hasn't stopped.

Many do, and this is a big sign that he or she has their teeth coming in. It's nothing to be concerned about in the least, but rather, excited about.
