Q.

sweating!!!!

Hi Doc !
I have a seven months old boy he sweats a lot when he is asleep since from birth.After I gave birth he snezzed first and the crying follow instead of just cry after coming out.I thought may be he did catch cold while inside but now the sweating is not going away. In the night i have to change his pillow because of the sweating.He is a very active boy, he is not coughing and he has no sign of fever.Is something wrong with him? Should I take him to the Doctor?

I am just concerned.

Thank you

This is very common in babies and is usually due to them adjusting their body temperature control.Your baby seems to be well and there does not appear to be any need for concern.
