Once your baby is born you naturally want to know all the time if it develops in a healthy way. A regular weight control with the help of a baby scale lets you know if your baby eats enough while nursing and feeding and gains weight in a healthy concern. More information >
A healthy baby needs to gain a weight between 100 and 200 gram per week. Hence it is enough to put your baby on the scale once a week. Pediatricians generate the development graph of a toddler from the ratio of length growth and gain in weight. That’s why it is important to carry out regular weight controls to receive continuously values. Especially during the period of nursing it is important to check on the weight regularly. A digital baby scale delivers exact values.
A digital baby scale shows the weight precisely. Most often the scales are divided in 10-gram-steps and suitable for a weight up to 20 kilogram. Thus they are perfect for checking in the weight of your child.
The investment in a good baby scale is generally worth it. If you choose a baby scale by Chicco or Medela with further possibilities to use, you can not only weigh your child, but also control the weight until he/she gets into school. If your child outgrew the baby scale you do not have to remove but use it as scale for packages.
If you want to control your baby’s weight in an uncomplicated and secure way you need to decide for a hanging scale, a foldable scale, a pan scale or a combination device. Models of manufacturers like Medela and Chicco have both advantages and disadvantages. The best scale for you complies with the individual requirements and conditions you have.
Hanging scales have the advantage to be markedly small, designed for mobile use, flexible and cheap. However, your baby needs to be swaddled into a towel or baby blanket which has to be hanged onto the scale. It’s not the most secure method to control the weight though. Pan scales are very easy in use since you can safely put your little one onto it - a model with changeable attachments is perfectly suitable for a longer use. Foldable scales can be stored space-saving after use and are super for being on the go. They are the most flexible combined devices.
The factors on which you should emphasis when choosing a model are as versatile as your personal requirements. If a device turns out to be a useful help does not only depend on quality, equipment, composition and reasonable functions. Primarily, your personal requirements are decisive. If you’re often in the go with your child you are likely to find a better use in a foldable scale. However, if you are looking for a fixed place for your scale, you should buy a pan scale or combination device.
Before buying one you should think of the requirements it needs to fulfill.
