At what age did your baby begin to drool everywhere? My son is 15 weeks and has started drooling and soaking his shirts. It seems like so much!

What's 15 weeks? About 3-4 months? That sounds about right for drooling. I used to have to wear a bib on them everywhere...

my dd started drooling a LOT at 3 months and she's still going strong at 4 and 1/2. I dont mind the drool so much but it is giving her major drool rash, her fingers are always in her mouth and she just smears it around and its just a mess! I have tried barrier creams to no avail, she still has the rash. I am going to try Lansinoh cream per someone's suggestion. Does anyone have any other good tips to combat drool rash?

MY DS has been drooling pretty bad since 6 weeks. We have to keep a bib on him at all times.

My dd has also been drooling since about 3 months. She doesn't get a rash, but her outfits are soaking wet.. You would think she was a kitchen faucet!! I have been putting a bib on her during the day and that seems to help. Now instead of shoving her dress in her mouth she shoves the bib in her mouth!

My son started drooling around 3months and is still drooling at 51/2months, no teeth as of yet. I always try to keep a bib on him during the day, or otherwise, we will have to change his onsie X amount of times. He has developed a small rash under his chin from the drool, I just try my best to keep it as dry as possible by changing his bibs throughout the day.

My son started to drool about 3 months and he is 1.5 and still drooling and chewing on his finger, hes not as bad as a infant but sumtimes soaks his shirts. I think they will do this till all there teeth are through.

I used a petroleum based cream I found at CVS for DD's chin when she started drooling alot. It was scented with lavendar and chamomile to help calm and it worked great. She never did get a rash adn I just made sure to apply a little at each diaper change.

My ds started at around 3 months. He's 4 months & still no tooth. Now he has diarrhea from swallowing too much saliva. Poor baby...

drool city over here. No teeth yet but I have to use about 6 to 8 bibs a day!! At 4 months their saliva glands are more mature causing babies to drool excessively. That combined with teething makes it even crazier.

My dd started drooling at 2 months. Now at 3 months she's a mess! I can only imagine how much worse its going to get. I haven't gotten out the bibs for it yet but it's prolly going to be any day. I'm tired of going through so many outfits.

I placed a bib on my son when he would drool so much. It helped a lot.
