  • That kind of sweating could signal a serious problem. You should mention it to the pediatrician.

  • Both of my younger kids do...to the point the bed it soaking wet. I'm not sure why, but it's pretty common I think

  • Neither of my boys do (they're 4 & 18 months). Maybe the room's too hot or they're wearing too many clothes.

  • I have figured why my daughter does lol. Cheap mattresses.You know the ones that are made and covered in plastic. Its like sleeping on a leather sofa..I bought a water proof mattress pad and it did the same thing to me :(

  • it happens maybe once or twicea month. And I really DONT think its the temp. or the bed becuase sometimes it hasbeen when he didnt have clothes on or when I was holding him.
    Should I be concerned?

  • My daughter's feet sweat all the time...she gets it from her daddy! If she falls asleep on my chest her head gets all sweaty and her hair is wet....it always gets my shirt wet. I think each person sweats differently! No biggie, just make sure if they are sweating you keep them covered up so they don't get a cold or something!

  • My youngest son did it and wasn't ill. Still it wouldn't hurt to ask the pediatrician at your next visit just to set your mind at rest.

  • My niece does that but it is because she is diabetic. Don't know of anyone else who does that.
