My son only gets my milk, and in the past couple days his breath has gotten absolutely rancid. I don't know what to do about it or what it could be. The doctor said as long as he didn't have a fever to just keep a close eye on it. Does anyone know what the cause could be, though?

Bad breath was a symptom of silent acid reflux for my baby. She also had other symptoms... she wouldn't stop crying, she arched her back while feeding, she slept poorly, she screamed when laid flat, she would only nap in an upright position... if your baby has other symptoms like this you should talk to his pediatrician about acid reflux. My daughter was diagnosed at 10 weeks but she'd had symptoms since about 4 or 5 weeks.
