Most new dads are told about 'drooling' with our child, figuratively of course, and to mean that we are enraptured by the presence of our child. Drooling, understood literally, will star our baby around two or three months.
The salivary glands They are activated from this age and many babies begin to look like little snails, drooling streams on their clothes or on our shoulders. Despite being something absolutely normal that the saliva that begins to flow from your mouth and falls through it, it is not exempt from causing some problems in your sensitive skin, both on the neck and on the butt.
The baby still does not know how to swallow the amount of saliva that begins to generate and expels it in the form of drool. This drooling can last for two years, increasing especially when the baby teeth erupt, around five or six months of life.
Saliva is acidic and swallowing it can make urine and poop acidic as well, causing more easily irritation or scalding. Also the skin of the neck can be irritated or reddened by the constant humidity. Irritation that can be aggravated by the friction of clothing and the remains of food that remain in the folds of the neck, providing the free circulation of fungi and bacteria.
To avoid these undesirable effects on your skin we must take care that the chin, cheek and neck area stay dry, for which we must place a bib made of cotton fabric that we can use to dry him and to keep his clothes dry. We can change it as many times as necessary and always have a gauze or towel on hand to dry it. We will also have to watch their butt, change them more frequently, use appropriate creams and put them, at least for a few minutes, with the bottom in the air, they love it! Not all babies drool, it depends on whether or not they swallow saliva.
The drooling of babies and children can also increase when they are experiencing an upper tract infection, a virus that affects the mouth or nasal allergies.
We should only be concerned if the child has symptoms other than drooling, if it appears suddenly and abundantly or if it lasts over the years (beyond the appearance of the first teeth), which may be a sign of some neurological delay or problem.
