Q.

1 yo bad breath every morning

It has been while, let us say 1-2 months already, also force him brush teeth everyday. He had a high temp a week ago, cured by Panado!

But why his breath still smelly?

Start to worry about him now...:(

Your baby should not have bad breath at her age. This may be caused by a throat or mouth infection. Tonsillitis is one cause that needs to be excluded. Please ask your doctor to see her.

This is true, my 1 year old also had a bad breath a while ago, caused by reflux and infection in his lungs, the smelly breath and reflux is gone now due to medicine.
