normal for toddler to sweat while sleeping?

my 18mo is still sweating a lot when he sleeps.. i thought it was an infant thing, but now he's a little older and he's still sweating a lot. we don't overdress him. is this pretty normal at this stage and if so, when does the sweating stop? i forgot to ask the ped at our last visit. thanks!

  • Yes totally normal. My three year old is still sweaty when he sleeps. My oldest grew out of it about age three and half.

  • My son still sweats, well both of them. They are 2 and 3. Call me dense, but there was a week my son was soaking the bed with sweat every night. I thought he had a fever! Then I realized I had a plastic cover on the mattress and it wasn't lined with cloth!

  • My son will be 3 in September and he is a sweaty sleeper also. I really notice it when he falls asleep on the couch and I go to pick him up and carry him to bed and his back is drenched!

  • My almost 2 year old sweats quite a lot when he sleeps. I guess it's normal!

  • Some people never grow out of it. I still sweat in my sleep, all of my kids do too. They are a bit worse than I am, but my guess is that it will calm down as they get older....
