My 2 year is drooling so much that it pools out of his mouth.
He has all 20 baby teeth now so it's not teething.
Just wondering if I need to be concerned?my others didn't do this so not sure if I should be.

No, my 4 year old still drools. Took him to an ent who said they aren't concerned if (mainly boys) drool until the age of 6. Apparently most grow out of it by then.
At 2, my son had a permanent wet top from drool. He doesn't have that anymore but wipes it on his sleeve etc

Oh ok, just worried as his just pools out (not just dribbles).
Just a constant stream of it.

Yea my son was the same, a permanent string of spit from his mouth. He still looks like that if he's concentrating or has a cold
