My 14-month-old has a bad breath. He has 8 front teeth and I started brushing his teeth twice a day but it doesn't seem to help. His teeth look fine to me. Any suggestion?

are you brushing his tongue as well? a lot of bad breath comes from a dirty tongue. If that doesn't help, you should take him to see the dentist.

Does he have a cold, congestion or sinus issues? Sometimes that can cause bad breath, too.
