My son sweats in his sleep and wakes up soaking wet! His sweat sometimes will have a really strong smell like vinegar! Is this normal?!

He's 2! Hes sweated a lot since he was born the health visitor told me it's normal, only recently it's started to smell! He's very on and off with his food at the minute. I'm going to take him to the doctors and hopefully get some answers

How old is he? This could be related to diet, it could be a certain bacteria that is present in his sweat. I would definitely discuss this with a doctor, as profuse sweating at night is not normal, and the odor is enough to be concerned. Do you live in a really hot climate, or eat a particularly unique diet?
