My 11 month old baby has got a bad breath and her two front teeth is rotten. Can the bad breath be caused by the rotten teeth? it is really worrying me and i really want to know what i can do to stop the smell. She is the first baby to have such a bad breath at the age of 11 months.

Babies should not have bad breath and there is always a cause for this.Your baby seems to have bad teeth and should be seen by a dentist.
