The best newborn baby scratch mittens for a scratch-free night

The best baby scratch mittens

As cute as they are, newborns come with impossibly sharp fingernails, and they can be even more impossible to trim with nail scissors.

Your little one’s newborn skin is extremely soft and supple, the last thing we want is little scratches dotted over their body, where they seem to have underestimated the power of their own hard-to-trim nails.

Baby scratch mittens are a great way to protect your baby from injuring themselves throughout the day and night. Typically made from cotton, they’re super soft and much more gentle on your infant’s skin than their own sharp nails.

Mittens are also a great purchase if your new arrival has developed eczema and is finding it irritable. They can prevent your baby from scratching or irritating their skin further, and give their gentle skin some needed uninterrupted time to heal.  

Below you’ll find a great selection of our favourite newborn baby scratch mittens for every baby and every budget.
