My baby is one year, four months. The odour from her month is sometimes offensive. I know I didn't start brushing early enough. But it all started when I weaned her. At the said age. Note: she eats normal solid food because she refuses normal baby food like pap, cerelac etc at seven months. Pls, what should I do?

Start with improving her oral hygiene by ensuring you brush her teeth for her twice a day and making sure you brush her tongue as well. Take her to see a dentist to exclude oral infections, decay, gum disease etc. If it's still persistent you may need to see a paediatrician as well to exclude other causes
Bad breath or "Halitosis" in children can occur due to several reasons like poor oral hygiene, mouth breathing, tooth decay, gum disease, infections in the mouth, bacteria on the tongue, dry mouth, tonsil stones, foreign objects in the nose and some medical conditions.
