4 month old with cold sweat

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

While I was breastfeeding my 4 month old the other day, I noticed her head was sopping wet with sweat, yet her body was cold. Is this a cold sweat? I have never experienced this before. Usually when she's sweaty, her body is hot. She was wearing only a diaper, it's about 96 degrees around here. I've noticed it happening a few other times during breastfeeding since then. Other than her strange sweat, she still seems completely normal. Energetic, happy, and interactive. Should I be worrried?

 

Thanks in advance.

This is common in babies.  I would not worry unless she develops other symptoms such as fever, rash, change in behavior, weight loss, etc.  If she develops any other symptoms, a visit to her pediatrician is necessary.

 

Warmly,

Dr. Jennifer
