In brief: Numerous

Bad breath is usually due to bacteria.
Baby bottle caries is one possible reason. If the baby went to sleep with fruit juice or milk in the bottle and it pulled around baby teeth, the teeth would develop cavities. There are a lot of reason for bad breath see your pedodontist-baby dentist.

In brief: IT DEPENDS

Babys mouth will be smelly if you do not clean it.
Notice the tongue gets coated with milk after feeding. How much more when he starts feeding with solid food?
