My baby girl sweats a lot, I don't think it is necessarily a problem it seems that babies run a bit warmer than us.

But if you think it's excessive sweating you may want to see a pediatrician.

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.Hyperhidrosis in a five months old is not normal and should be evaluated. He might be overly warmed or exposed to hot climate. Adequate fluids intake and milk and consult your pediatrician for the cause. Congenital hyperthyroidism disorders need to be ruled out. If all workup clear then just conventional measures would suffice.



Take care
