Here’s the thing about a 2 year old going through this (rather than an infant)… (1) an increased capacity to drool, i.e. A LOT more drool and (2) an inappropriateness for him to walk around in a bib (which was cute when he was 6 months old). Now, one added benefit is that he now has the where-with-all to wipe his mouth and at least try to contain the drool but it isn’t helping too much. Not with the amount of drool we are talking about.
When I picked him up from school yesterday, his shirt was so saturated that it was slimy. They said that they had tried to have him wear a bib but he didn’t tolerate it (shocker). Needless-to-say, today I brought burp cloths to school with him so they would have something softer to use for him to wipe his mouth, which he will do on command. So in my mind, they will have the cloth somewhere accessible for him and they can remind him to go use it (I doubt very much that this is how this will work).
Research only brought up ridiculous things like the possibility of seizures and being that there is no fever to go with this situation, I am going to stick with it just being a phase for now and hope for it being a short one.
I want to emphasize, but I can’t nor do I want to, how much drool this is. It’s a lot.
