My son did the same at around 3-4 months. He would try to stick his fists in his mouth and he drooled a lot. He also had reflux. I did some research and learned that the excessive drooling and fist sucking could be a sign of overacidity. He used to have acid reflux so it made sense to me. At the time, I was eating more acidic foods (mostly meat and grains) and not enough vegetables and fruits. So I changed my diet and started eating more salads, cooked vegetables, fruits, and alkalinizing foods. I stopped eating out as much and cut out dairy, wheat, seafood, nuts, soy, and anything artificial. Oh and I started taking homeopathic cell salts (safe for babies too). After changing my diet, he stopped the fist chewing and excessive drooling! His bottom teeth came in at around 8months old and his two front teeth came in at 9months old. His side teeth are coming in now at 10 months old and his teething symptoms are pretty mild....he does like to chew on stuff but he doesn’t try to stick everything in his mouth and he doesn’t need to wear a bib for drooling anymore.
