    Exclamation Foaming at the mouth?

    Just wondering, is it normal for babies to foam/froth at the mouth whilst asleep?

    I'm taking it as this isn't normal if people who have looked at this thread haven't experienced it with their bubs... We have a GP appointment today anyway, we might just mention it to him.

    Catherine, I have only just seen this thread. Do you mean foaming or spit bubbles ?? Because the spit bubbles are pretty normal. Bub has saliva in her mouth and hasn't yet worked out that she needs to swallow it.

    But if she is infact foaming then I would say it wasn't normal and want to see a Dr too.

    I hope all goes well at your appt. Please let me know how she goes
