Infant seems to have profuse sweating on head. What could the cause be?

My baby is six months old and all the sudden (over the past three days) her head has been sweaty a lot. It is fall and she is usually dressed well for the weather so it doesn t seem to be an over heating thing. Why is her head sweating? I first noticed it when I laid her down for a diaper change and when I picked her up the back of her head was soaked. She also sweat when her head is not against something...

Thank you for your query.
There is absolute reason to worry. Some babies do perspire more than others.Usually the sweat glands are not developed well after birth therefore you could not appreciate the sweating. As long as your baby is active ,playful, feeding and peeing there is no reason to worry. Enjoy the fall and give her a lot of fluids.Enjoy your motherhood and don't panic.have a nice day.
