My baby is sweating - what do I need to know about it?

Aloha, have you ever noticed that sometimes your baby sweats abnormally, especially while sleeping or eating? First of all don't worry, this is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. Babies don't have the same cooling system as adults and their sweat glands aren't fully developed yet. This means that they often sweat excessively or cool down more quickly. The Spanish Federation of Paediatrics confirms that sweating at this age is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

But that doesn't mean we can't do anything to minimize sweating. One way is to pay attention to what kind of material we use for baby care. Avoid materials that are tight and restrict the baby's skin, and make sure the baby isn't wearing too many clothes. It is also important to make sure the baby is well hydrated. If the baby is younger than 6 months, we should ask the pediatrician if he can have water in addition to milk. For older children, it is recommended to supplement their daily diet with at least one glass of water, as our body is made up of 70% water. If the baby is sweating excessively, it may indicate that they are dehydrated.

Another important factor is choosing the right clothing for the weather. In summer it is advisable to choose light and breathable clothing that will facilitate perspiration and avoid allergies. A hammock can be a good choice as it allows you to regulate body temperature in relation to the outside temperature and minimize sweating.

Pay attention to the surroundings!

You should try to set up the environment so that the children can better regulate their body temperature. It is not good to have them in very closed places with very high or very low temperatures.

Also note that if the child is tired, lacks appetite, or is vomiting, it could possibly be due to a sharp change in temperature and poor body regulation. In this case, you should immediately measure the child's body temperature and consult a pediatrician.

As a parent, you must learn how to best manage the use of appropriate clothing and materials that meet the needs of children in different climates. This way you don't harm the child's health and he can easily adapt to his environment.
