My son 5 month and have cold clammy sweat from both his palm and feet. He also have excessive sweat from his head, plus loosing hair a lot at the same time. I would have to put on the AC (cooler) while he is sleeping to cool him off but it still doesn't work. He would wake up with puddles of sweat on his head and pillow, plus lots of hair on his pillow that had fallen off. In room temperatures, cool, or with the AC he still sweat a lots, plus breath a lot from his mouth while sleeping but his nose is clean. He eat jar food because his formula doesn't satisfied him every 2 hour . Sleep after every time feed, barely awake. He was born full hair, I know baby are suppose to loose there hair afterward but he is loosing too much and look almost bald. He sweat while sleeping,playing or staying still.

Has your son seen his pediatrician for these symptoms? His sweating could be normal for him, but it could also be a sign of a serious medical condition. An appointment with your pediatrician for evaluation would be the best idea. Has he had his thyroid checked? Sweating and thinning hair/hair loss from the scalp are both signs of hyperthyroidism. Here is some more information . Please let us know how he is doing!

Best wishes,
Atti
