    Does anyone else's babbas have trouble keeping these things on?:hissy:

    Ive bought the ones from mothercare and some cheapo ones from ethel austins but they all fall off!

    Ive clipped Leos nails but he always has his hands up by his face and manages to scratch himself all the time:cry:

    Ive tried pulling his sleeves down over them and folding the tops over but they bloody well wont stay on his little hands!

    Argggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh:hissy:

    I bought the Sainsburys ones for Sam and they hardly ever fell off. Little socks work well too as they're a bit tighter around the wrist :lol: x

    We never had to use scratch mitts on Poppy but some of the babygros she had had inbuilt scratch mitts (an extra bit round the cuff that you pull over the hand) Hey presto, no mitts falling off :) You can get them in Next and also Mothercare I think. Will try and find a link

    Try this link https://www.next.co.uk/shopping/children/newborn/1/3

    Try socks instead! This worked for me because the socks had a tight bit at the top and they fall off or get pulled off!

    I have the same problem with the scratch mits being too big and falling off , All of the sleep suits I bought with the built in scratch mits are way too big for my lil guy , The preemie stuff he has dont have them . Im too afraid to clip his nails , good thing he dont scratch himself much , He has only ended up with 2 scratches so far . I thought about using socks but havent tried it yet .
