My daughter sweats alot, even if she only has a nappy on. Even when she was born the midwives kept checking her temp because she always felt to warm. She just runs at a higher temp then normal. It caused lots of dramas in summer but now that were going into winter it'll be even harder to make sure she is warm enough with out her sweating

My son only gets sweaty like that if he really crashes out big time. Like, if he throws a before bedtime tantrum or something, he'll tire himself out to the point where he sweats while asleep. I try to dress him in accordance to the night weather, even though I have the thermostat on 68 always.

Its easy to over dress and cover them cos you think they will get cold. Always feel her back or tummy rather than her head and hands when trying to see how hot she is. During summer (we are going into winter so we are starting to rug up again!) I would dress Corey in a light jump suit then adjust with the sheets or a light blanket during the night. We also had our air con on vent to keep the place cool.

My son is a sweater and often will only sleep in shorts, hes 4 now and dresses himself, he hates wearing pants. My daughter who is 1 gets hot but dont sweat. I make sure that her whole body feels the same temp, if it is I leave her be. If she gets too uncomfortable shell wake up.

My daughter could be sleeping naked and leave a sweat puddle on her sheet! she is like her daddy that way. People always tell me she feels like she has a fever, I have learned to carry a thermometer with me to assuage peoples convictions that she is always sick! Some babies are just hot. My doc told me when she was born that babies do not have the ability to sweat...but mine did!!! No worries, I think it's normal.

Just check that she's not too hot, got too many blankets or the room is too stuffy.
