    is it 'normal' for an 'almost' 2 year old to constantly drool?

    It is completely normal. If they havent gotten their eye teeth, they could be cutting them. They typically come in around 18-20 months. There are also molars that come in around 24 months. And my 3.5 yr old still drools. I am forever telling him to swallow

    I agree, normal if they're teething. Ethan was super drooly whenever he was teething. It is just getting better now (at almost 26 months) because all his teeth are in.

    I actually have a completely different answer to that question... many times when gross motor/ small motor, speech is developing it will "override" a baby's focus on swallowing saliva... have you ever seen a kid run or write/color with their tongue hanging out of their mouths? That's because gross/small motor usually overrides oral motor in the brain.... it's totally normal for all kids.. throw some teething in and you can almost guarantee it at that age!
