Sweating while nursing. Commander Shepard 18 kids; Jacksonville, Florida 6447 posts

I remember when DS was a newb the doctor always asked if he was sweating while nursing and he wasn't. He is 6 months now and has started to recently. His head is soaked after a couple if minutes. Should I take him in or is it just a concern with newbs? It's about 70 degrees in our house.

I never had the doctor ask if he was getting hot. Maybe just bring it up to his pedi just to be safe?

I made a mistake and googled and it can be a sign of a heart problem.

My son did not do this, nor have a I heard about this. I'd call pedi ASAP.

My LO does on occasion. She's fine but the pedi was concerned because her oldest sister has a pacemaker, but everything checks out.
