Anybody else's toddler sweat and drool a lot in their sleep?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering....because after every nap and every morning when he wakes up, DS's hair is soaked from sweat and drool, as is the bed/pillow......Seriously, I have sometimes seen a "halo" of wetness around his head that spreads about 3 inches out from his head.

DH is starting to get worried....I have a thyroid condition, and he's worried about DS having it too and it going undiagnosed.

DS has always been a sweat hog, but then again so are DH and I - as for the drooling, well, we don't do that very much ourselves - :LOL

Also, DH calls me "the human furnace" because I'm always warm, so I'm wondering if maybe DS didn't just inherit this, too...

Anyone else have a sweater/drooler? DS has his next checkup in a month so I'll ask, but in the meantime I'd appreciate any input so I don't obsess and start Googling all sorts of rare endocrinological disorders....

As always, thanks!

Both of my kids are/were. Ds not so much anymore. If dd is already awake and moving around when I go in to get her after a nap I have to double check that her diaper didn't leak, the sheet is so wet. I just do laundry a lot. I've never thought much about it. Neither of them seem to be heavy sweaters when not sleeping. And it's worse in the summer, definitely.

HTH!

YES!

My DS sweats so much I was beginning to get a little worried. His head always soaks where ever he is sleeping. He drools quite a bit, too, but the sweat is rediculous.

So you aren't alone!

My boys both sweat immense amounts in their sleep. They're always warm to the touch so I think they're just naturally warm people.
Not me though. I'm always cold.

Yes, dd3 is quite sweaty. The last time I changed her sheets I noticed that she had salt stains on her pillow! Don't know about drooling, but that wouldn't surprise me since dh drools (the things you learn *after* you're married, lol).

:LOL

Thanks much, mamas. I feel a lot better now. I'll ask the doc at his checkup, just to be *sure*, since I do have a thyroid problem and I don't want to let anything slip through the cracks, but I feel much better knowing we're not alone!

DS leaves sweat stains all over the sheets. I think he got the sweatiness from his dad.

Yep - DD is just like her mama

My son drools a TON - I have to change his pillowcase and sheets every couple of days because all of the spots bug me! LOL

Ds is a sweat-ball at night. We co-sleep and he night nurses. After he rests his head on my arm to nurse, both my arm and my pj's are soaked with sweat. He also gets the sweat-ring around his head. I often worry that he is just "trapped" between dh and I and getting toasted from body-heat. Sometimes, I'll sit there and fan him with the pillow until I fall asleep because I feel he must be uncomfortable. Apparently, though, we are not alone.

Our son is also a heavy sweater when he sleeps. I did a search for "sleep sweat" because I was curious to read if there were others that experienced this and sure enough, here we are.

Just another mama with two kids who sweat a lot at night. DD isn't so sweaty during the day but DS can be. I am like that, so I am pretty sure they get it from me.
