Sometimes little ones will scratch themselves unintentionally because they don't always have good control over their arms and hands. They like to have their arms up by their head and can scratch themselves sometimes. You can use the newborn mittens but I never did, my babies always liked their fingers in their mouth and their hands up by their face. So I would just make sure to keep their nails trimmed short. You can use an emery board to file and sharp places.
