Bad breath in a 6 month old?? UPDATE



I don't understand it. My DD is six months old. She is breast feed, and also gets home meade baby food (unless we are out for the day then she gets earths best). But recently she has had some funky smelling breath. It's kinda like ... I don't even know how to explain it.. I'm at a loss for words to discribe the smell. It's not strong, just very aparent when I get in her face. Any help ?


Nikki

I called the pedi. They said deffanatly caused from her allergies.. Nothing we can do about it except continue treatment for the allergies.. thanx mamas

Could she have an infection? Sinus, tonsil, etc?

Have you been eating any garlic, onions, or asparagus lately? What foods has she been eating?

Well I eat every vegie I can get my hands on.. So it would be possible. She is eating . Sweet potatos, green beans, peas, avacados, carrots, bananas, pears, apples, prunes, peaches, and I juice too. So she gets fresh apple juice.

Is she a refluxer?? Refluxers sometimes get bad breath because of the reflux and the acid.

Bronchiolitis can definitely cause bad breath.
