5 Month Old Bad Breath?

My 5 month old who has teeth coming in has really bad breath. I clean it out with infant mouth cleaner and it does nothing for her. I don't know what's going on with her. She has a doctors appointment next month, but should I take her sooner?

  • your baby could have a cold.

    or she could just need a good gum brushing... wash her toys. the things she sucks on the most.
    sucking on something over and over usually makes it smell after a while because of the germs from baby's drool.

  • Yes, your baby could have a cold it's called sick breath or like my twins, they have bad breath all the time from their formula:)
