More than just keeping the parents up to date and excited about their baby’s development, weighing a newborn baby’s weight is a vital part of the initial observations that are taken by medical professionals at birth. Measuring the baby’s birth weight provides a starting point for the baby’s growth chart and will help monitor the baby’s weight gain and loss.
Ongoing measurements are taken to make sure that weight gain is happening as expected. A simple set of baby scales can highlight the need for additional care and treatment.
Having accurate baby weighing scales is important for checking in on a baby’s health and development. With this in mind, we’ve put together a few essentials to look out for when shopping for baby scales.
At Active Mobility, we stock an incredible range of baby scales that meet these requirements, meaning they can easily be used in a professional or personal setting. Browse through our collection and check out online today.
Our scales are built for accuracy and sourced from some of the world’s most trusted manufacturers — however, there are a few techniques you will need to use to ensure you measure correctly. Here’s a quick rundown:
Please note that weighing newborn babies should be completed by a medical professional. For the most part, baby scales are used by doctors, nurses and midwives.
Here at Active Mobility, we stock a wide range of baby scales from Marsden to ensure you can safely and accurately weigh infants. For example, we stock the Marsden M-310 Handheld Baby Scale that’s extensively used by health visitors and midwives. Ultra-lightweight and portable, this set of baby scales comes with a reusable sling and an optional carry case so you can make house calls with ease.
If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution to weighing babies, we recommend the Marsden M-400-50D Baby Scale. Again, this scale is lightweight and portable but also especially robust, capable of weighing babies and young children alike. The baby tray can be removed, revealing a weighing platform that young children can stand on to be weighed.
Plus, these baby scales come with a digital height rod that allows you to measure the height and length of the baby while you’re weighing them, making the measuring process quick and simple (especially important for babies who tend to wriggle!).
This set of baby scales also has an optional carry case or rucksack for house calls and travelling.
