Baby's drool coats toys and other objects with disease preventing proteins. Stomach acid is neutralized by the saliva in the baby's intestinal lining and is further developed from all the drool and heals the esophageal lining that may become irritated from spitting up regularly. Drool has special enzymes that will help your baby begin to digest solid food when he is ready to eat.

So drool on baby's toys are good. Hmm. I knew that the saliva starts digesting food before chewing/swallowing, even as adults our saliva does that too.

Really? I didn't know that...does that make it Ok to give my dd the toys that she throws down! LOL! It's become her new favorite game to throw everything down! I'm getting tired of washing them like zillion times a day! SIGH!

Nita~I think that you don't have to wash the toys off everytime she throws them down. I think that if the baby is esposed to a few germs that it can only help her because her body will develop antibodies to those little germs, making her immune system stronger. So next time she gets a cold, it may be a lot easier on her because she already has built up the immunity, if she catches a cold at all. So I wouldn't worry about everythin being spotless all the time. This doesn't mean live like a slob, though! LOL! I think too much of anything and too little of everthing is not good for you. You know how people say "Use in moderation", there has to be a middle ground somewhere!

I actually knew that everyone I tell that too thinks I'm making it up as I rarely drink anything with my meals as it aides in digestion. I has IBS horrible a few years ago and found this helped so....
