Make sure that your baby is on a good diet with plenty of fibre, fruit and fluids[other than milk] in his diet.Do not give him any cheese of any kind.Give him a course of Duphalac liquid 5ml daily for 14 days to help him to get over his constipation.Babies should not have bad breath.He may have a blocked nose or may have a tonsil infection so it would be best to ask your doctor or clinic nurse to see him to try to find out the cause for his bad breath.
