5 month old baby sweats when he cries... is this okay???

is it normal for my 5 month old to sweat when he cries. He will cry for only a few minutes & then he gets all sweaty on his head & neck. I am just wondering if anyone else has a baby that sweats when he cries & if it is normal??

  • I've knows some friends baby's that do the same with the sweating. They were the same as you--concerned. Their babies were fine. They had spoken to their pediatrician about it and there were no other issues. The best thing to do is speak with your pediatrician just to be sure! I wish you the best!
