Jenna's hands and feet are always clammy and sweaty and she goes to bed with a onesie in air conditioning and pulls her blankets down...I have gotten her from sleeping and her head was all sweaty in air conditioning with a light blanket. Anyone else? I read something disturbing online that said sweating in babies is linked to SIDS. Like i need anything else to be anxious about...:P

I've had infants that wake up with sweat on the back of the neck after sleeping in a onesie and no blankets when everyone else had a blanket.

I would agree, that c02 would be the more likely cause. Carter is not a sweaty baby but we don't keep it all that warm

Eve sweats while sleeping with the ac on and no blanket because she kicks it off.
