How do I keep my daughter from scratching her face I've clipped and filed her nails but she's still managing to scratch her face a d leave marks.

Neither clipping or filing her nails is not working she's still scratching. P. s I've also tried putting hand mitts on her but she finds a way to take them off she will be a month old on the 12th of this month.

  • If the mitts are too big, make them smaller with a little safety pin at the opening. The worry about her scratching her face will give way soon enough to other issues. Good luck.

  • Like mid said, throw a pair of socks on them for now. You can also get soft mittens- made specifically for this purpose. How old is she ?
