  • If the room is not too hot, and she's not too hot, then she could have sleep apnea. Google it, or call your doctor to ask him about a sleep study for her. If she doesn't snore, it's probably not sleep apnea. Try putting a fan in her room at night.

  • My six year old does the same. He sleeps in nothing but undies and covers with a sheet. Sometimes his hair is almost dripping wet when he wakes up...I have on appointment on June 16. Hope we both find an answer.

  • My daughter does this too and her doctor says there is nothing to be concerned about. I was actually super hot through my entire pregnancy and she has been a little furnace since the day she was born. She will not even wear pj's to bed at all. She sleeps in her skivvies and either uses just a sheet to cover up or nothing at all and she is still always sweating. You should talk to your pediatrician but try not to worry too much.

  • My 9 yo dd did this when she was really little, and even once in a while these days. It didnt matter how cool it was in the room she would just sweat profusely. I took her to the doc. He was concerned and gave her a bunch of blood tests and an mri and even a sweat test. it all came back normal. Its just part of who she is. If youre worried about it, definitely talk to your doctor.
