My toddler has really bad breath?

About two to three days ago my 14 month old started to get really bad breath. I can't figure out what's causing it, because her gums aren't bleeding and it actually smells like sour soymilk if that's possible. I'm calling the ped. tomorrow, but I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

  • Is she brushing her teeth?

  • Brush her teeth twice a day with kids toothpaste. You only need to use a pea size amount.

  • Does she have a runny or stuffy nose? A sinus infection can cause really nasty breath!
