In brief: Yes
Babies can sweat, but it is not common and can be a sign of a problem. Usually it is a sign of overwrapping, which means the child is dressed in too many layers.
However, if the infant is not overdressed and it is occurring with feedings, it can mean there is a problem with your baby's heart. If you suspect this is the case, you should contact your healthcare provider right away.
