Maybe is her own nails. Dont wear mittens it will slow their learning. The baby is learning things through sensory. Mittens will obstruct their grabbing abilities. Just remember to put some cream and trim the nails. She will be fine!😊

Possible. My baby also likes to scratch herself when she is frustrated and wants to sleep. She never scratch her face though.. She always scratch her scalp. You know your baby best. Did your baby scratch herself when she is at home?

Super Mum

Yes with sharp and long nails. Best to trim the nails as frequent as possible esp the corners.

Super Mum

Yes, esp when she is too sleepy and cranky. Dun worry, baby’s skin will heal very fast.

Super Mum

Yes. My baby does that too. Best to make sure your baby's nails are trimmed frequently...
