"ScratchSleeves are brilliant! We can now relax knowing our 5 month old daughter isn't scratching her eczema until she bleeds when she's asleep or in the car. What a difference your product has made to our lives. Thank you!" - Lindsay

My 4 month old has an Nasal Gastric tube due to health reasons... that she is adept at pulling out! So I needed some hand protectors so she couldn't get it. I like the ScratchMeNot and the Goumikids mittens, the other brands I tried were horrible including Handsocks and these Scratchsleeves. Sleeves are okay, but can only go with long sleeves. Pros: The color. ScratchMeNot were obnoxious colors. This was neutral. Loved the soft material. Cons: They would NOT STAY ON my daughter's shoulders, even under a shirt. Her hands and arms kept popping out. They made them way, way too wide. Weird.
Didn't fit as well as I hoped for. Our 5 month old wiggles a lot and easily escaped this. The material is nice for eczema kids though!
Like many of the other "reviewers" my daughter has eczema. All night long she scratches at her hands until the bleed and she wakes up screaming. All. Night. Long. We got these sleeves in yesterday and she slept so well! She didn't even try to scratch! Also, the fabric didn't irritate her skin. For us, it works better if you put it ok under baby's clothes.
