: Iíve noticed my son seems to be sweating in his diaper. Itís nothing extreme, but Iíve checked him to see if he needs to be changed and his diaper is moist and clammy from sweat. He doesnít seem to be sweating anywhere else (like heís overheating) when Iíve noticed this. Obviously I can only notice it before he pees, so itís hard to tell how much itís happening. Iíve noticed it both during the day and definitely at night. He gets a little out-of-diaper time each day but obviously we canít do that too much. Any ideas of how to keep him cooler down there? He wears Pampers Baby Dry. Thanks!


I've never noticed this with my son but a few suggestions would be to make sure the diaper is not on too tight....I mean it should be snug enough so that he doesn't leak but you also want to make sure a little air can get in.
Also you can try a little cornstarch to keep his skin dry or baby powder. My son's doctor reccommended cornstarch to keep my son's skin dry on his bum when he had a rash so I'm sure it would help with any sweating/perspiration.
