1. Physiological sweating
Sweat is secreted by the sweat glands of the skin. Sweat glands are one of the important structures of human skin to regulate body temperature. Baby metabolism is exuberant, the skin moisture content is larger, the skin surface microvascular distribution is more, usually large amount of activity, the skin evaporation of water is more. Moreover, the baby’s ability to self-regulate cold and heat is poor, even at night also like to sweat, which is a normal phenomenon.
Sweating is very common when babies are sleeping, not all of them are physically weak or sick. In fact, a considerable part of the children are physiological sweating, physiological sweating more common in the head and neck, often occurs within half an hour after falling asleep, one hour or so no sweating.
