The main cause of increased saliva in babies is
preparing gums for teething. This period may begin with

water They can be cooled in the refrigerator and give scratching gums
to kid. The pain will be much less intense.

The salivary glands are not yet fully formed, and during the first
years of life may from time to time arrange a “check” of their
work. Saliva secretes too much, the baby is not able to all
swallow and it flows out. Fortunately, such periods
short-lived and are rather rare, but nevertheless
have a place to be.
