We’ve been dealing with Brantley’s eczema for several months now and it’s definitely been a daily battle.
We were fortunate enough to get blood work done that gave us some answers to her eczema, but it was tough news to hear. She’s allergic to a lot. For a nursing mama, it was hard to hear she was allergic to milk, eggs, peanuts, wheat, and rye, which meant I had to completely change my diet.
I’ve changed how I’m eating and I have noticed an improvement, but we’re still having issues with Brantley scratching.
When she’s tired, she immediately goes to her face and scratches as hard as she can. I felt like I had to watch her like a hawk to keep her hands from going to her face. It didn’t matter how short I clipped her nails, she was always itching and had the scratches on her face to prove it.
I couldn’t have been more excited when I learned about a product called ScratchMeNot that would help ease my mind and allow the scratches on her face to heal.
ScratchMeNot flip mitten sleeves are perfect for infants, babies, or toddlers who struggle with the itching and the damage it causes. It’s actually a piece of clothing that stretches across the back and can be flipped over for mittens over the hands, or just left as sleeves with fashionable and fun fabrics. There are sizes that range from 3 months to 3T
Brantley wears these sleeves, now, the majority of the day, while we’re hanging out at home, and definitely while she’s sleeping at night.
Her face has all healed up and I have ScratchMeNot to thank for it! For $24.95, these sleeves are more than worth it to see this pretty little face, sans scratches!
ScratchMeNot isn’t only for those with eczema. It’s a great answer for those itching from poison ivy, psoriasis, chicken pox, or anything else, too!

We still have a long way to go when it comes to Brantley’s eczema, but I’m so glad we’ve been able to find scratching relief for her. It’s made a world of difference while we figure out what’s causing all of this.
I DO have one complaint.
I wish I had MORE! The fabrics are so cute, I wish I had one in every pattern!
