Bed solutions for toddler who naturally runs hot?

C

My one year old is a little furnace and gets hot easily. Though it doesn't seem to bother him, his hair will be wet with sweat within seconds of being laid down to sleep. Even if he was wearing only his diapers, the side of him that he is lying on will be overheating and that side of his head will have sweaty hair. I've tried fans but he seems bothered by the air flow and moves away from them. No blankets. His mattress is a regular mattress with cotton fitted sheets. What should I do to ensure he gets a comfortable sleep?

    No blankets, and I have a fan on, but not pointed at my son

    Do you have a mattress liner on there? If the mattress is plastic with me liner he may just be sweating because there's not enough buffer between the non-breathable plastic. Sorry if this is irrelevant w. Good luck!

    My son is the same way even with an air conditioner on. Just keep doing what you're doing.

    Silk pillowcases and sheets do help!
