I have the same problem, she had a horrible scratch on her cheek earlier this week that is still healing
She has quite big hands and likes to put her fist in her mouth so not had much success with mitts, but she hasn't grumbled too much about the sleepsuits with built in fold over mitts so maybe you could try those? xx

Hi, Toby has been the same since he was born and he's now nearly 7 months! When he was little swaddling worked best. Scratch mitts are useless, the sleepsuits with integral scratchmitts are fab though (I like the Next ones best but lots of places sell them). Unfortunately most only do the integral scratchmitts up to 6 months and my big boy has way outgrown those so we are back to lots of scratches every day
We are no longer swaddling so he only option left for us is socks on his hands!! He just pulls them off with his mouth though.
I keep his nails super short but it doesn't really matter how short they are, if they scratch hard enough they will break the skin.
Sorry not much help but as your LO is still little thought I would recommend swaddling and sleepsuits with mitts.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
