Face Scratching

When did your baby stop scratching their face? My 3 month old still always scratches her face especially behind the ears and around her eyes. I always feel scared that she'd hurt her eyes. Is it just random movements or because her eyes/ears are itchy? I don't want to use mittens and I cut her nails often but she managed to make some cuts on her face once in a while...

My lo stopped when he was around 6 months

Mine scratch his ears and eyes when he’s sleepy.

Mine too.. My baby is 3 months old as well. I just let her explore.. As long as you cut her nails, it's fine.

it is quite common and do look out for the nails and keep it blunt. you can also wear mitten when asleep at night

It’s common for baby to scratch his face. My lo is already 7 months old and also likes to scratch face or thighs. It’s baby nature to explore.
