My infant 9 m old head most of the time sweats while sleeping in night. Is it normal? What r the possible reasons

8 month old baby twitches while sleeping is that normal or should I be worried?

Dreams: She is likely just dreaming, causing her to twitch which is the most common cause of twitching like this. I know you're probably worried if she's having seizures or something more serious like that. There's an entity called Infantile Spasms but she doesn't quite fit the criteria for that either. If she starts truly flexing her upper body, at the next or waist, take her to her pediatriian ...Read more

My 4 weeks baby was sleeping with us in our bed covered under our blanket he was sweating when he woke up, how could it harm his skin or health?

My 4 weeks baby was sleeping with us in our bed covered under our blanket he was sweating when he woke up, how could it harm his skin or health?

If you have a consistent bedtime & routine of rocking, nursing, reading & wiping out his mouth after the last feed, then put him in his crib drowsy, but awake, he'll learn to self calm for sleep. This increases his chances of consolidating sleep by 4 mos. & prevents developmental night-crying at or after 6 mos. ...Read more
