Q.

Night sweats

My 6 month old boy is sweating a lot during the night but he does not show any signs of fever or flu. And I also like to find out if it is advisable to stop breast feeding him now.

Night sweats are a common way for babies to present with TB. It is very important for him to be seen by a doctor and tested for TB.
