Hi welcome to healthcaremagic

There is no major problem for this bad breath at 9 months of age, the odor is caused from the stomach, this is due to indigestion of milk, since the baby is still feeding only on Milk.. normally after 6 months of age weaning the baby with other foods like smashed boiled potato, carrot, vegetables or rice must be given... which will improve the nutrition of baby and regulate the digestion... do not worry much, just change the feeding habit, also supplement above mentioned food...
