I noticed that too, I asked our pediatrician. He said there are different reasons but usually it's related to bacteria. I was told to keep his feet dry and use corn starch in shoes. Be sure they are wearing cotton socks or leather shoes if your dressing them up so their feet can breath. And to let them go barefoot as often as possible, its a bacteria that tends to like moist warm places so keeping their little feet aired out and not to hot worked for ours!

My sons do to.. The sweat. He's six months and I've never seen that before. I tried getting new socks. Hanes from target are good. Let them dry really good after baths.

My son's started to smell too, so i just made sure to wash them extra well with baby wash and they seem to be better.

I would definitely have it checked out by the doctor just to be sure it isn't something more serious other than just foot odor caused from sweating. Good luck!
