Baby's teeth are sprouting, and it's causing her to drool like crazy. She's also starting to experiment with her voice. Don't worry if these first teeth — usually the center bottom — grow in a little crooked. By age three, when all 20 teeth have come in, they should straighten out.
[tip] Leave baby with someone familiar for a few hours and see a movie, grab coffee with a friend, or run some errands. Seeing you leave and (more importantly) return will help baby adjust to being without you for longer periods in the future.
