Why does my baby always sweat?

I am wondering if there is something wrong with her.

Some babies sweat a lot. Some will sweat profusely while asleep, others throughout the day. It is normal for the baby to get a bit warm; she's still trying to adjust her thermostat. It's likely nothing to be concerned about, but mention it at her next well-child checkup.

Babies typically sweat quite a bit because their body systems aren't quite developed yet. Just be sure you aren't overdressing the baby. Dress your child as you would dress yourself.

Hyperhydrosis is the condition of overactive sweating. Many new mothers over bundle their babies. Babies actually have a slightly higher than adult body temperature so less bundling is needed. If that doesn't work see a doctor.

Sometimes babies, especially newborns, have problems regulating their body temperature. Given time, most cases go away as the body balances serotonin levels.

It could be as simple as you are dressing her or him in too many clothes. I know you should keep a baby worm but you do reach a point when you can put to many clothes on them. Try reudcing the amount of clothes you put on them and then discuss it with your doctor.
