Is It Normal If The Baby Sweats Excessively?
Hello good morning, I want to ask my baby 4 months old when he sleeps in excessive excessive sweating but his hands and feet are cold, and often his face is red and his breathing is rushed, is that normal ??

We understand the concerns that you feel.
Baby's sweat glands in the face and head area tend to be active when resting. In addition, the metabolic process in the body is also ongoing and affects nerve activity, which triggers perspiration. Because of this, if the baby tends to sweat more while sleeping or resting, the condition is normal and very common in infants to toddlers.
Related to babies who often blush when "stuck", of course this is a normal condition too. The condition is generally a muscle stretch that occurs spontaneously. When the movement is done, the muscles in the face and some parts of the body will stretch. The effect is that the blood vessels will stretch and blood will accumulate to then circulate normally again. Baby's skin tends to be very thin so this can affect changes in skin color when stretching is being done. Baby's breath that seems choked up is also normal if after stretching the muscles the condition will improve as before.
The baby's reflexes and movements are still not completely perfect, so infrequently baby's movements and activities make parents feel uneasy. But based on the information provided, your baby is still relatively reasonable.
If necessary, consult further with the nearest doctor or pediatrician to get further examination and evaluation related to the condition of your baby.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
