Q.

9 months- mouth smells badly

Good day

I have a 9 months old daughter whose mouth smells terrible, is this ever possible, she only has one tooth, which is not fully grown.
She eats foods like maize meal pap, bottled purity, Nestum Cereal, crushed banana, mashed potatoes, drinks NAN formula, purity juice and rooibos tea.
Please help me, am I giving my daughter something which may be bad for her?

Your baby should not have bad breath. She may have a throat or tonsil infection. Please ask your doctor to see her.
