As the title says really
I was thinking my sanding them? But in reality, I've no idea

How can I make my relatively new holds kinder to my hands.

Get some "climb on" to help your hands recover and your hands will just thicken. Calluses aren't good.

Once your hands are acclimatized then it's useful for longer climbing sessions and outdoor climbing - you can't sand gritstone!

Also if your hold are jugs then make sure you are holding them correctly

Very good point. It was always pain from my hands getting pinched that would finish me off on steep routes until I realised this.
