    Is it normal for a 6 week old to be dribbling a lot? Kai is blowing bubbles as well. Just seems a little weird to me this early.

    I just looked in his mouth and there seems to be 2 white patches on his gums where his 2 front teeth should be. Is this the beginning of teething?

    someone said to me that dribbling is when thier mouth starts producing the digestive enzymes so they can start to digest food properly.

    i think hat sounded right? :?

    Yes that's what I was told too Hypnorm. Would make sense with Damien, he has started dribbling recently and now wants a 4oz bottle every 3 hours instead of 4 hours! Hungry little chubby. lol
