Sara DuMond, MD, FAAP responded:
Hi pawpaw1pawpaw,
Sweaty feet in an infant by themselves, should not be concerning. If babies noticebly sweat (all over), particularly with feedings, that might be something to let the pediatrician know about. Otherwise, if the baby is gaining weight appropriately and thriving, there is most likely nothing to be concerned about.
