baby bad breath

Before becoming a mum, you will be warned about many of its drawbacks: all the sleepless nights, all the pooey nappies… But no one ever warns you about baby bad breath!

Just picture it: cuddles, coos and giggles after a warm and fun bath with your little one, you get closer to give him a kiss in his tiny little nose, and suddenly… What’s that smell? Could it be… But, yes! This baby has bad breath!

Bad breath in babies doesn’t need to be a symptom of something going wrong – although it is so in most occasions. Pay attention to the following lines if your little one has a case of baby bad breath.

 

The causes of baby bad breath

Usually, bad breath in babies is a sign of something being off with your little one – but don’t worry, it’s usually some illness with an easy solution. Let’s take a look at them:

  • A cold: Yes, a cold could cause baby bad breath, especially if it develops into a throat infection or tonsillitis. If he has also a stuffy nose and starts breathing through his mouth, it won’t help him sweeten his smell either.

  • Other diseases: sinusitis and allergies could also be the cause of it. Be careful if your little one’s bad breath is especially intense or foul, because an extremely bad baby bad breath could be a sign of a serious infection. If you notice a strong unpleasant smell in your little one’s breath, take him to the doctor soon.

  • Foreign objects: some babies like, for some reason, to put things in their mouth of noses – and the latter can be dangerous! An object like a pea or a bean in your little one’s nose could easily cause bad breath.

 

There are also other causes of baby bad breath that are unrelated to illnesses, such as:

  • Consuming certain foods: if your toddler likes to eat foods like onion and garlic, he could have bad breath for a little while after his meals.

  • A dry mouth: If your little one has a dry mouth, the bacteria in his mouth are more free to grow as they wish, which may cause baby bad breath. And what could make your baby have a dry mouth? Well, your little one breathing through the mouth instead of the nose could be one of the reasons. Another reason would be sucking his thumb a lot. Putting objects in his mouth, like toys, can also be the cause of bad breath in babies, especially if he tends to do so with the same ones and those are not washed frequently.

  • Poor oral hygiene: Brushing baby teeth is important! If there are rests of food in his mouth after the meals, it’s easy for a baby to develop bad breath.

 

How to face baby bad breath

As there are different causes of baby bad breath, there are also different solutions. Take good note of them!

  • Take him to the paediatrician: Of course, if your baby’s bad breath is caused by a disease, like the ones mentioned above, you will need to visit your GP. If your little one doesn’t show other symptoms of being sick, you don’t need to hurry, though: the bad breath could be caused by something else. 

  • Keep good oral hygiene: Brush carefully your little one’s teeth and, if he doesn’t have any yet, use a soft wet cloth to gently wipe his gums. You can also use some toothpaste (just the size of a grain of rice). In the case of toddlers, brush them twice a day and take him to the dentist regularly.

  • Keep good hygiene in general: if you sanitise your baby’s toys and help him learn the habit of washing his hands regularly, you will help with bad breath if he has it. And if he doesn’t, those are still good habits to learn!

Do not use mouthwash to make bad breath better, because it actually won’t: it will hide your baby’s bad breath, but it won’t solve the underlying problem. Besides, in the case of babies, it can even be dangerous, since they don’t know how to spit.

  

See? There are many things that can be done about baby bad breath: The next time you kiss your little one, it’ll all be fuzzy clouds and roses!
