Because mine does

I'm hoping its just a baby thing, but I don't remember my ds sweating as much as dd does. Her curly hair is alway wet! She looks like she just took a bath.....all the time. Its not even that hot here in oregon yet.

My DD is like that. One of the first ways I learned to recognize when she was tired was that her head would get sweaty. She sweats like crazy, has since a tiny baby, especially her head!

My DS just started walking and seems a lot warmer now. He is dressed in t-shirt and shorts. No more pants and long sleeves, he gets too sweaty. I would be cold but he is comfortable. My DS also seems to get really hot right before he falls asleep.
We're in Oregon too.

my 7.5 mo ds sweats like crazy when he sleeps (plus he drools ) - if he wears anything more than a diaper to bed, we both wake up in a big puddle

You might want to mention the sweating to your ped at your next appt. Not meaning to scare you but my DD was like you described and ended up finding out that she was having low blood sugar during the night when she wasn't eating as often. It was one of the first signs we noticed and she ended up being diagnosed with a genetic disease. It probably isn't that as the disease is really rare, but during the process of getting a diagnosis the ped said that sweating like that could be a symptom of many different things.

One other possible cause is allergy. Doris Rapp discusses it in her book, "Is This Your Child?"

DS 2.5 and DD 3 months both sweat a LOT. Poor kids. They get so hot and sweaty that it really worries me. At Least DS knows to get out from under the covers.

Mine, too. I know she's sleepy when her head gets moist.

DS's head used to sweat a lot when he slept, but in the last few months that has vastly decreased--he's 19 months.

DS sleeps w/ a prefold under his head, otherwise the sheets are soaked! I still have to change the head-dipe during the night or it's soaked!!
