Sweaty infant: Many babies are over bundled due to fear of the child getting cold. This can cause overheating and increase the risk of SIDS. Your infant should wear the same amount of clothes as you.

Hello, my baby girl is around 8.5 months and she has this condition where her head sweats so much that her hair is soaked .. What could this be ?
I do not know: Young infants generally generate a lot of body heat, and if you are keeping her bundled up as well, she simply may be sweating as she loses body heat through her scalp/hair, causing the wetness.
