    Default Sweaty little feet an hands

    DS (15 weeks) gets sweaty palms and feet anyone else have/had this, does it mean something? Or just normal. He gets it a bit more on warmer days but even when I put him just in a singlet when it's really warm. Should I be talking to a Dr???

    First time mum so not sure if I should be concerned or not

    Normal, my guy had the same thing. Something to do with newbies not being able to regulate their own body temperature very well. Although I still get sweaty hands & feet and I'm 31

    DD was the same too. I'm pretty sure it's normal.

    Babies' bodies don't know how to regulate their temperatures yet, so they tend to sweat excessively. It's normal

    Yeah it's normal. DD2 gets such a sweaty head when I give her a bottle that my arm holding her head is covered in her sweat. I'm always wiping her head with a bib afterwards. The room could be nice and cool but it doesn't make a difference.
