    I have noticed that Phoebe seems to almost choke on her saliva sometimes. She will just be resting and suddenly she will gulp 2 or 3 times as if she has forgotten to swallow her saliva or doesn't know how to. She dribbles lots too which I thought they only did when they were teathing but HV told me babies dribble from day 1?
    I'm just wondering incase she has an over active Saliva gland or a problem with swallowing.
    Thanks Guys :)

    I think it's quite common for babies to really start drooling around 2-3months old as the salivary glands become more active...so not necessarily anything to do with teething.
