In an otherwise healthy baby, there is nothing to worry about.... Some babies drool saliva as habit which they outgrow. However if there are other medical issues for example delayed developmental milestones... Kindly see a Paediatrician preferably a Paediatric Neurologist for further evaluation
Tongue sucking is one of the common oral habits seen among children. It is normal for infants to suck their tongue, thumbs or fingers. It gives them a form of comfort or emotional security but when this habit goes beyond the age of 5 years when the permanent teeth start to erupt, then it can cause dental problems such as the teeth being out of alignment. You do not need to worry or do anything for now. As the baby grows older you will need to encourage him or her to stop by positive reinforcement that is giving rewards on days when the child does not suck. I hope you find this very useful.
