My nephew is 18 months old and he is still drooling really bad. Is this normal?

Any suggestions would be helpful

Babies drool a lot, especially because they don't have teeth. They aren't into the habit of just swallowing their spit (it's not gross, we all do it. You don't spit in a sink every time you have spit in your mouth) so they drool. Sometimes it's because they use a pacifier too much. Hope this helps!!! You can also consult his doctor about it too!!

This is totally normal! I babysit a 2 year old who wont stop drooling. He will stop eventually and this is probably from sucking on a pacifier for too long.

If he isn't teething or doesn't have anything wrong with his mouth or new teeth then it's probably just drool for the sake of drool. Some kids are drooly into their toddler years.

Absolutely. At 18 months hes surely cutting teeth and that makes them a dool pool. Big time.
