  • My DD does have that smell sometimes but it smells like spit up. I bathe her everynight and pay extra close attention to her neck since spit up can get trapped under there. Sometimes the smell lingers on past the bath but I love giving her kisses so I push threw the smell=]

  • It could be spit trapped in his neck. My DD gets it in the folds of her neck all the time, spit up, milk, drool, food, EVERYTHING!

    That may be where the smell is coming from.
