“My baby son is almost 20 months old. Since he was about 8-months-old my baby’s bad breath has smelled sour. He had a lung infection twice and gets diarrhea easily. Is this halitosis? Should I be worried?”

It really does catch your attention when you can smell baby bad breath (halitosis) in your baby. Just like in adults, keeping fresh breath requires keeping the mouth clean and brushing teeth.

Take care of baby with bad breath

Babies who have stuffy noses from colds or allergies may have post-nasal drainage that gives them an odor on their breath. Sinus infections can also cause to little ones bad breath.

Many babies regurgitate food and stomach acid into their throat without spitting up, a condition called gastroesophageal reflux. Babies with this problem may have had wet burps during their infancy or may have spit up more than other infants. As new foods are introduced, some of these may irritate the stomach causing more regurgitation.

Try to take note when you notice the bad breath most to see if there is a food associated with it. And be sure to discuss it with your doctor so she can help you determine which of these situations may be.

  1. hi i’m a mother of a 15 months old baby… i’m about her bad breath with a foul smell also in her stool…. she got an umbilical discharge while she was 3 months old…. how i wish her umbilical inside is not rotten??

  2. Hi there!

    First of all a intestine infection has to be discovered by a doctor not by yourself. Your doctor can make a complete examination and he has to decide what is the problem. If your doctor sais that its nothing wrong with the umbilical area, inside or outside, you can check the food reaction of your baby’s stomach. Like I said in the article, when new foods are introduced, some of these may irritate the stomach, and that gives them an odor on their breath.

    You can observe a simple reaction with the milk. Drink a cup of milk and feel your breath smell after 1 hour (even the taste is changing)! You will not like it!

    But if you drink a tee, you will observe that the breath smells different! The same it’s with all animal products that come in us, in compare with vegetable products. The difference is that animal products in our body – they start to get rotten, but vegetable products have a fermentation process. So, the fermentation process doesn’t hurt the stomach or intestine.

    Try to put your baby to a 14 day diet without animal products. You can mix the milk with plants tea that don’t have so much power on the body, let’s say, depurative plants in low quantity!

    Ask your doctor before changing something in the diet of your baby!
