My dd was always a scratcher, since birth. We just trim her nails every day, or sometiems I wait until i see a scratch if I forget. She would never tolerate mittens, so we tossed that idea pretty early. Keeping them short is the best way to go, IMO. DD uses her hands a lot for exploring and she can't do that if they're in mittens. Anyway, if you bite them while you're nursing, it's pretty easy to keep them up.
