Baby Binaca

Noah has very bad breath.

I don't know if it's due to his meds or his nasty formula (he still uses and will only eat the Nutramagen) but either way... it's gross. Sometimes I can't quite figure out what it smells like but yesterday it smelled like the cheese you get in the handi-snack cheese and crackers. Quite foul when it's coming from your child's mouth!

I've tried wiping out his mouth (gums and tongue) with a wet wash cloth but it doesn't help. I would think maybe he had thrush but I don't see any sign of it. (Or I would give him the Nystatin he used to LOVE).

Shane says we need to Binaca the Baby... I can just imagine how well Noah would like that!

I just put a little Nystatin in his mouth and guess what magically appeared??? A white rash all over his tongue! He DOES have Thrush!! I am totally grossed out. But hopefully this means his breath will get better.


  1. That is funny. I can smell my kids when they are sick. They give off this odor. I know it sounds gross, but all of them just have this sick smell when they have a cold or an ear infection. That is when I know that they need something.

  2. Oh no, yuck! At least you're not nursing then. I'm glad you've figured out what it is and hopefully he smells minty fresh soon ;)

  3. Oh man, sorry he has thrush. Never fun, baby breath is supposed to smell sweet, right?

    At least he likes the Nystatin! We used to give that one to Anna last and she would sit there and suck on the swab like it was lolly pop!


Thank you for commenting. I love hearing from you!
