    Default sweet breath?

    My EBF 10 week ds has sugary sweet smelling breath. Is this normal?

    Probably yes. Newborns tend to have sweet-smelling breath. But if you have any question, talk to your pediatrician.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    Hmm, well it depends on what you mean by sweet. A fruity odor is associated with diabetic ketoacidosis and other abnormal breath odors can indicate other metabolic conditions. My breast-fed baby has pleasant smelling breath but I wouldn't call it sugary.
