    Bren was the same way. I mentioned it at my doctor's office and the nurse said 'oh one of those', so I guess it is kinda normal. I tend to lay a thin blanket between us now if it warm or he feel a bit sweaty. I have also noticed he is not as sweaty as he used to be. I guess it has to do with their ability to regulate their own body tempature better as they get older.

    My lo is exactly the same- her upper back sweats so much- i always have to check her temp- I get concerned she overheats during the night.

    Just also need to make sure that she's not got a hat on, as babies regulate their body temp through their heads.
