  • how is the temperature in your house? Does he sleep on a plastic crib mattress? My youngest son is a hot box, If he gets under covers you could bake brownies with him...he is just hot natured

  • I suspect he's hot. Take the blanket off.
    My youngest little girl gets really hot if there's any covers on her when she sleeps, so I just dress her lightly and let her sleep without covers even though it seems to me she should be cold. She hates being hot.

  • It's actually very common and normal for people to sweat a lot when sleeping. As long as it's not soaking through the sheets, he should be fine. You can probably find more on a medical website, for reassurance. I wouldn't know which one to try, though.

  • My son sweats a lot in his sleep too. It is nothing to be concerned about but if you are worried talk to your child's dr about it.
