This may be due to drainage into your throat from your sinuses. Whilst asleep you may have a trickle of mucus which can often be brownish. This is not serious and does not need treatment unless it wakes you up regularly.
Dr K A Pottinger,
saliva per se doesnt have smell.it is only when the glands are infected that sakiva can have some sort of smell.maximum number of times.saliva seems smelly because of the bacteria inside the mouth.these bacteria leads to fermentation of food etc,leading to bad smell.
can you tell me is it more in the morning or more in the night?
if you keep good hygiene of your mouth it should solve.
Thanks for writing to health care magic.
That is normal in a 2 month old baby. But if the problem is excessive it could be because of gastroesophageal reflux.

Hope this helps.
