Both of my kids are sweaters. My sister used to refer to my son as a little furnace because he could make you sweat just holding him. When they are sleeping it is the worst. My son used to wake up with soaking wet hair.

I have a five-month old baby who sweats a lot too. I don't worry about it because his father is the same way. One of my nephews did the same thing and still sweats a lot when he is active. I just make sure that my baby doesn't have too many blankets on at night - in the heat of summer I would dress him in only a diaper and t-shirt.

It is normal, as some people just sweat more than others. Just make sure that he is not running a fever. As a baby my son, would wake up soaking wet and his hair would be like I had just washed it. His pediatrician said it was normal for him, he would never run a fever or had any type of infections. He is nine now and he still sweats alot, when he is active playing, also still when he goes to sleep. It doesn't matter what the temperature is.

Don't worry about it, maybe it's hot, try letting the baby's body have some fresh air by letting him wear short sleeves, etc. My younger brother, I remember when he was a baby and his feet use to be very sweaty when sleeping. Luckily, he grew out of his "sweaty feet". Don't be to concerned because as long as the baby isn't shaking or trembling, there's nothing to worry about.

Yes, it is normal. But keep and eye on his/her body temperature. Make sure they are not covered up with too much of blankets. Keep them cool by the amount of clothing and the color of their clothes. Hide the sun from their face, by covering up any sunny areas in the room.
