Quoting Angel [Mariah's Mommy]:" DD has the worst breathe ever no matter how much we brush her teeth. Stupid chronic post nasal drip. Other than that she only smells when she sweats. She's 5"


I have a post nasal drip and it caused me to have tonsil stones which cause bad breath. I currently use Flonase, Claritin, gargle hydrogen peroxide, clean out my tonsils, and use a neti pot...and ever since I started this routine things are so much better and I can finally breath.

The only time my 6 year old daughter's breath smells is if she eats something with garlic in it, like spaghetti.

DS is 5 and has the WORST morning breath... But it's good because it gets him to brush his teeth more.



But other than that I don't think he smells at all.

She doesn't have stones yet, I'm hoping we can get her tonsils removed before then. For now there isn't a whole lot we can do other than keep up on her allergy medicine.

I have seen videos of kids doing the neti pot, you can't try that? That really sucks!

My girls are 10 and 4 and 13 months none of them smell lol



But my 4 yr old only does when she has a UTI its how we know she has one. She never complains of pain. So the smell is our indication of one.

DS is two. He doesn't have stinky morning breath & his hair doesn't smell bad, it only gets washed once a week. The only thing that ever smells funky on him is his feet is he's sweating really bad lol

My oldest has allergy issues so he has retched morning breath.. I'm about to talk to an allergist and try that simply saline, its a constant battle. His feet stink if they sweat sometimes, like gym socks lol I only wash his hair twice a week(though I rinse and condition every other day atleast) he is 3.5.



My almost 14 month old smells a little weird if he sweats alot..but only his head, its weird. Its not super smelly or musky, its like wet clothes if that makes sense? I still like his smell though..lol I love my kids' smell.. Id bottle it if I could.
