Are some babies just hot natured?

DS is 1 week and he sweats all the time. It's winter so I keep dressing him in long sleeve footie jumppers to sleep in and when we're just at the house but I have to keep stripping him down to a diaper because he sweats so bad and as soon as he's naked he calms down.

I know his dad is really hot natured as well. I've checked his temp 3 times (once rectally) and it's was 98.6, 98.4 and 98.6 again. Should I bring this up to his pedi when we see him tomorrow?

My daughter has always been hot natured as well,like me,and she sweats like her dad so we always dressed her like we do ourselves (instead of adding a layer like you're sppose to with a baby) and she was fine.

Just dress him a little cooler. I wouldn't worry about it, my ds is really warm naturally.

DD is super hot natured, and always has been. I'd dress him cooler, and see if it helps. During the winter ppl typically keep it warmer in their homes than in the summer anyways.

Yep, my dd is always cold, and hates it so she gets undershirts and fleece pjs. My ds is a sweaty boy so he gets a short sleeve onsie with two piece cotton pjs. He boils if i put him in fleece and gets super cranky

Yes.  This is normal!  Just like adults, kids are all different!!!  My son is a chunker and he is VERY hot natured!  He doesn't like socks, jackets, nor to be covered.  If he gets hot at night he won't sleep good either.  Try not to over heat him and just keep him 'comfy'.  

Drove me crazy in the hospital b/c the nurses kept swaddling my baby and putting the hat on him and he'd sweat and be fussy!

My daughter is.  She has her dad's hot feet.  When we'd nap together, I'd wake up soaked in sweat.
