    Yes. He is probably teething. My DD started teething around 4 months. Keep some baby motrin, baby orajel, and teething rings handy. Also teething tablets sometimes help.

    I found a nice website for you that may help. My daughter is 8 months and still no teeth but I can see there imprint in her gums. So I am not a big help.

    Wes started this at 4 months and I could see bumps under his gums.
    He finally cut the teeth at about 5 months

    Drooling starts around 4 months because babies have control over their hands. remember, their mouth is they focal point. When your mouth is open all the time, you will drool also.

    Teething can start around 4 months. But there are more symptoms then just drooling. Drooling is natural.

    Go look at that website for more information.

    P.S. My oldest started drooling at 3 months and didn't get a tooth until 10 months.
