Excessive saliva in babies
I have a 5 month old daughter , whole day saliva is coming out of her mouth .I am really worried is this normal or some desiease. earlier everyone told me that when baby will get older it will stop but it is getting more and more day by day.
It is very common for infants to drool or have excess saliva. They don't have good coordination yet for containing oral secretions. Over time this will improve, it's very normal!
