mine does it heaps ever since she was born everyone said to me they'd never even seen a baby sweat let alone as much as mine does. its from her dads side of the family i think, but i wouldnt stress too much

my son use to sweat when he was breastfeeding lol. i never noticed if it happened when he would cry, he hardly ever cried *insert jealous stares here lol), but yes, when he was feeding, he would end up soaked thru his shirt, and mine lol. they are just cooling off :)

my daughter used to sweat a lot as a small baby often when she cried. I was told that it is a way of releasing hormones left from the birth etc It also cools the baby down as they can get very hot and bothered and have no other way to regulate their temperature.
