Head Scratching

My 6 month old DS scratches his forehead when he's tired and is making a right mess of it! He can whip off the scratch mits quicker than I can get them on! I'm putting "Salcura" on the marks to sooth them. Anybody else had this problem?

Yes I’ve had this problem. My ds is 5 months and I’ve given up on the scratch mits now. I just keep his nails short and this seems to minimise the damage.

ds 4months has a tendency to literally claw at his face. I simply keep his nails REALLY short and he only ends up with the odd war wound
