    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    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.
