It may not be so easy to use mattress stitch on this raglan line. You can always line up the public sides of the sleeves and the fronts, pin along the seam line and stitch a seam diagonally from the armhole bind off up to the neckline. A sewing stitch like a runnung backstitch works well here (a stitch forward and a half stitch back).
For adult sweaters it works well to put the raglan decreases one or two stitches in from the edge and use mattress stitch but sometimes that's not so convenient for baby sweaters due to the smaller size.
