  • Move up to the toddler tooth-paste. It's a little stronger than the baby stuff. Also, brush his tongue. A lot of stinky bacteria live on the tongue....

  • It's from teething. My son gets it sometimes. I thought he shoved something up his nose, so I took him in, but it's from teeth breaking through the gums.

  • Use Weleda toddler training toothpaste. It has a lovely, mild minty taste and smell. My son always has great breath.
