Mittens or no mittens?

Is it better for a 11-week old baby to suck their fingers or the mittens? She don’t like the pacifier. I put mittens on so that the baby won’t scratch her face. I am worried that the baby will poke or scratch her eyes. Will that happen?

Won’t poke eye but definitely will have some scratches on face but don’t worry will heal. Mittens is fine till abt 2-3 months after that can remove Just make sure her nails are short so don’t worry

Not to worry. Just make sure u trim her fingers weekly to avoid nails growing long to scratch her face. Without mittens is for LO to exercise her fingers and helps in muscle development.
