In brief: 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. Monitor baby carefully for blue and cold fingers and toes. Don't use too many blankets. Here's a good hand-out: http://www.nih.gov/news/health/nov2010/nichd-02.htm (If that doesn't solve it, see your pediatrician).
