What causes bad breath with an 11 month old

The doctor say maybe: cold, teething or rather she was unsure totally with it. I have researched & some answers were passing more gas than normal (but this doen't apply) and the other was heart burn (but that doesnt apply either) so what could it possibly be??

  • do you use a gum or tooth brush? that may help some. try to make sure baby doesn't go to sleep with something in his/her mouth. if your house is on the dryer side, try running a humidifier. that may help if it is caused by mouth breathing.
