  • my daughter used to sweat A LOT when she was a baby, especially during her naps on hot days. She kinda out grew it, but I would check with a doctor to make sure its not a hormonal mbalance or something. I'm not medically educated enough to know what I'm talking about so I'd see a proffessional. Good luck =]

  • My baby sweats when she sleeps, especially when she falls asleep nursing. I think it's totally normal, but call the doctor if you're worried.

  • My boys ALWAYS sweat. My 3 year old doesn't sweat quite a much as he used to. My mom says my brother sweated a lot when he was sleeping too when he was a baby.
    So I figure some kids just sweat more than others.

    Most kids do get a little warmer anyway when they sleep, that's why they say not to take their tempuerature right after they wake up, if your checking when they're sick.

    He's been like that since he was newborn...and still today. He turns 1 on the 28th.

  • it is not normal for infants and toddlers to sweat all the time! some peds just don't know. It could be a Vit D or other deficiency! Check around - nutritionalists, holistic docs, web sites like - Dr Joseph Mercola and Mike Adams, the Health Ranger -
