I have to constantly have my daughters hands in mittens, shes just over 9 weeks, however i feel that i am depriving her of things, she wont grab onto anyhting but a finger... But the minute i take her mitties off, no matter how short her fingernails are, she digs herself in the face or legs... its not like shes itching, it looks like she doesnt even mean to do it. I just feel so bad. Other than that she is smiling and gooing she says Ahh goo all the time now, shes been rolling over for a month and a half, shes knows who mommy and daddy are,,, i just wish she could have her mitties off... anyone else deal with this or have any ideas? when she scratches herself she makes herself bleed and screams bloody murder...Answer Question

My son did the exact same thing. For his first few weeks of life, he had socks on his hands most of the time because I was too afraid to cut his nails and didn't want him digging into his face. Well I started to think that having his hands confined all the time was no good and that he wasn't going to be able to explore the world around him and develop motor skiills at the same rate...so i sucked it up and clipped his nails. I also filed them too. We haven't had the problem since!
