    Could it be that what you saw dripping from your son's mouth was milk mixed with saliva? I bet that would look pretty slimy.

    Alternately, could you have been seeing the hindmilk that comes at the end of a feeding? It often is very thick and creamy, like coffee creamer, as opposed to foremilk, which is thinner and more watery-looking.
