Ok. So I know that this may be a weird question for me to throw out to any parents who might be reading this. I also know that if any of my friends or close family members are reading this, they will inevitable roll their eyes and shake their heads and momentarily disown me for being ridiculous.
(This happens, on average, at least 3 times a day).
So here is my question:
Little Chica is a healthy 18 months old (the doctor assured me this today at her 18-month check up). She eats (somewhat) well (this will be fodder for another Mommy Advice post. Probably soon. So stay tuned). When she started getting teeth, we, as every good parent should, started brushing her teeth. Initially, we weren't as consistent about it (she had like 2 teeth). The more teeth she got, the more consistent we became. Now that she has most of her teeth, she gets a teeth brushing twice a day.
But she has bad breath.
I'm not talking about "oh, she just ate" bad breath. I'm talking eggs. Dirty diapers. At first, I didn't think the smell came from her. I've been known to have a sensitive sniffer, so I tried to convince myself that there was no way my beautiful little girl's mouth could smell like roadkill. The bad breath is a recent development, and it's freaking me out. Hubby rolled his eyes, shook his head, and disowned me over my ridiculousness. But my Mommy Instinct won't let it go.
So that's my question: is this normal? Have other parents experienced this? Am I not brushing well enough? Should I be concerned? She doesn't even eat eggs????
Thanks for refraining from eye rolling. And head shaking. And disowning. And not thinking I am too ridiculous.
I hope you come back. Otherwise this blog would be a dark and lonely place.
I look forward to hearing every thought any of you might be willing to share! So leave a comment!
