Sweating after feedings????

My little boy is 3 weeks old and has been drinking formula for 2 1/2 weeks. We use the regular enfamil premium stuff. After feedings he gets really sweaty. What do you think this could be?

Re: Sweating after feedings????

He might just be a sweaty kid, but he also might be having a hard time sucking the formula out of the nipple. Try a slightly faster flow. Also, mention it to your pediatrician, because sweating during/after feedings can sometimes mean a baby is working too hard to eat/suck, and a heart or lung issue can (rarely) cause that, like it did with my DS.

Is he sleepy after feeding? Both my girls would start sweating something fierce as they got sleepy (which often would be at the end of a feeding -we nursed though). Hubby is the same way - as he starts dozing off he starts sweating so I never worried about it.

Maybe the milk is too hot. My oldest daughter would do that after drinking from a bottle, but that was the only way she would drink it...really hot.
