Re: Question about bad breath in child..

I would also say it's because she's sick.

Just a side note: I recently took my 6yo DD in for her teeth cleaning and mentioned she had been having bad breath (she'd been perfectly healthy) so I asked them to check it out. The hygenist noticed that my DD was mouth breathing the whole time. Apparently, this dries out the mouth, killing the good bacteria in the mouth and allowing the bad bacteria to flourish which causes bad breath.
