Q.

Baby sweating

I took my baby for his 6 week check up, and the doctor asked me if he sweated while he nursed, which he does, but i did not ask what that meant. Why would he ask me this? It can''t be bad, otherwise he would have said something right?

This is perfectly normal in young babies and is thought to be due to the baby's temperature control being immature and still developing.
