How many oxygen masks drop on an airplane? Is it one for every seat or are there extras?

I can't believe I'm wasting a question on this one but I wonder about it every time I fly*. Having (thankfully) never been in a plane where the oxygen masks drop I don't know for myself.
Babies are allowed to fly on the parents' laps up to a certain age so if there is only one oxygen mask per seat ... those babies are just SOL?
*Ok, I wonder about it every time I fly with my dog because you bet your shit that if something happened during the flight and there was a loss of oxygen I want to pull my dog out and hook him up to a mask too.
