In brief: Temeprature?

Check the thermostat and the temperature in your child´s room to make sure it is even around the house.
Make sure the room is not to hot for her or him and do not over cover or use pajamas made of synthetic fabrics. Stick to cotton. What kind of mattress does your child sleep on? Does it have vinyl? Does he always sweat or only at night?
