What to Do When Your Baby Sweats

If your baby sweats without signs such as high fever, respiratory disorder or tonsillitis. Mothers should not be too worried.

In many cases, babies sweat after breastfeeding or bottle feeding. This is a normal physiological phenomenon in children. Babies sweat to cool their bodies or in response to the warmth of the milk. Other babies tend to sweat a lot at night, also known as sweating.

Cause sweating

This sweating is often seen in children with vitamin D deficiency in the early stage. Symptoms show that children often fussy crying, restless sleep, or startled, due to nerve stimulation. Children often sweat on the forehead, nape, even when it is cold. Especially when they sleep a lot, so they often lose hair in the nape.

Children under 1 year old often lack vitamin D. Because this is the stage of the strongest skeletal system.

Because when the baby sleeps, the mother covers too many blankets for the baby. Besides, the bedroom is too tight and has no ventilation. In this case, sweating is not a disease, parents just need to clear the bedroom for their children.

The fear of sleep can also stimulate the sweat glands to work vigorously , causing sweating and cold. Parents should pay attention if babies are stressed when sleeping (maybe because babies are too active during the day, causing fatigue).

In addition, the phenomenon of sweating a lot can also be related to a number of other diseases in the baby such as:

Children with calcium deficiency (accompanied by delayed teething symptoms)

Baby has a number of cardiovascular diseases (poor feeding, slow weight gain, easy fatigue)

Baby has a sensorineural disorder …

Ideally, you should take your baby to the doctor if the excessive sweating in the baby is accompanied by other abnormal signs of health.

Sweating is also a common symptom of sneezing and runny nose in your baby. At that time, you should check the temperature to check if your baby has a high fever.
