  • spolied milk? Not saying your not brushing the teeth but try brushing the tongue to remove food particles and bacteria that way and see if it helps.

  • Make sure he is brushing his teeth before bed. Some people just have bad breath?

  • Make sure you are brushing his teeth and cleaning his tongue and nothing to drink accept water after that....milk and juice at bedtime turns to sugar in their mouth and causes their teeth to decay on top of it "souring" overnight inside their mouth. I am a dental professional.

    I brush his teeth and tongue myself. I did find that it may be a health problem. Thanks.
