My LO is 10.5 months old and she is starting to get stinky breath... We wash her teeth with a flannel at bath time each night and she has a baby toothbrush to chew on after meals. What else can I do/should I be doing to help her?

My daughter gets a stinky breath when she's teething or has a throat infection, so it might not actually be linked to eating solids.

She isn't teething at the moment and she doesn't seem to be in pain or anything (I assume she would be with a throat issue?)

Ohh my dd used to smell horrific!! I put it down to teething??? Not sure if it's correct but I noticed when her breath was really bad she was on the brink of cutting a tooth. Could this be like your Lo? And her dummy was atrocious in the morning. I kept sterilizing her dummy, and just doing what you do with the toothbrush. You could buy baby toothpaste and put an absolute minute amount on the brush at night before bed then a bit of water to wash it out. Helped a little..

She has 8 teeth and this is the first time her breath has been stinky but I'll keep checking to see if anymore are breaking through!

Mainly related to throat infection from every time I've experienced this with all 3 of my kids worth getting checked if your concerned but I've never herd of smelly breath when teething only if the older kids don't brush their teeth will it get bit smelly.
