Hi there,
Possibly hormonal changes.
1.You could take a thyroid level to find out if that could be the case.
2.Since your body may be working harder to help you with feeding the baby and recovering after the pregnancy, it could be manifesting as sweating.
3. Anxiety associated with parenting could cause this too.
