  • Does it stink all the time? Is he congested or have a cold right now? I know that when my boys are sick with colds, their breath could kill a horsefly! It's all the drainage. If this is not the case with your little one and you're really concerned about it, maybe speak with his doctor or take him to the dentist. I started taking my kids when they were 1 year old and had teeth.

  • Does he go to bed with a bottle or cup of milk? If so, he may have bottle-mouth... Rotting teeth. Ugh. Might want to get him checked out by a dentist.

  • He's just getting over a cold... and as of the drink thing. Yes, he goes to bed with milk or water sometimes, not every night... in a cup and he NEVER falls asleep with it in his mouth, he thros it when hes done. I do it b/c it helps him feel relaxed.... bad?

  • sounds like it could be a sinus infection. My LO has one and OMG!!!! does his breath stink. Take him to the Dr to see what you can do to get rid of it.

  • My little sister stuck a piece of a sponge up her nose when she was about that age, and no one knew it for a LONG time until her breath started reeking non-stop, she'd have occasional nose bleeds, and snored really loud. Her breath was SO AWFUL! Eventually (like after 6 months) the doctors figured out she had crammed something up there and removed it, and everything eventually went to normal.

    But it could be something else also. Check with your pediatrician.
