Our 2 year old's mouth smells bad in the morning. Although we brush her teeth everyday before bed, she drinks her milk from her bed- warm milk makes her fall asleep quickly- could this be the contributing factor?

Most people that I have ever met have bad breath in the morning. That's pretty normal, but Sarah is right about the milk after brushing teeth... not good for her dental health at all.

She should not be drinking milk after she brushes her teeth. That causes her teeth to rot. You can do warm milk BEFORE you brush teeth or WATER ONLY AFTER teeth are brushed. Yes the milk can be making her have bad breath because of the bacteria that sits in her mouth overnight from the milk.
