Q.

my 1 yr old''s breath smells

She had been very grumpy these days and now her breath smells and she snores could this be infected tonsils or something else?

A.

Paediatrician

It is most unusual for a baby of 1 month to have bad breath.The most likely cause is tonsil infection [also unusual in such a young baby]. It sounds as if your baby also has infected adenoids. She must be seen by a paediatrician ASAP.
