My ds is 2.6 years old and he eats fruit and not many sweets. He brushes his teeth twice and day but still seems to have the problem. Am I doing something wrong, has anyone got any suggestions

Ditto, Happymumof2. Last year ds' breath was awful & i kept telling him to clean his teeth. He had tonsilitus.

He's not constipated, is he? Constipation can cause bad breath.

He doesn't have inhalers by any chance? Sometimes my son has smelly breath if he has a sore throat

He is not constipated, he has had a few bad nappies and I have put it down to his teeth. No inhailers either

Does he drink plenty? Bad breath can be a sign of not drinking enough.

He drinks plenty lonelymum sometimes I think too much. It is quite hot here at teh moment so he has always got juice on hand
