Why does my baby need to wear mittens?
Mittens, also known as hand covers, are designed to cover newborn hands to prevent their nails from scratching their sensitive skin. Mittens can also assist with keeping your little one’s hands warm in the cooler months. Looking for natural fibres is also important as baby’s small hands are often in a fist or clenched, therefore they can get quite sticky and sweaty, so choosing mittens, that can be securely fitted and are made from natural fibres helps their little hands to breathe and can absorb the sweat. You can help prevent scratching when your baby isn’t wearing mittens with regular nail maintenance, such as filing their nails gently with a nail file. Other Alternatives such as long-sleeved growsuits and bodysuits with built-in mittens are also great to consider using.
