First topics I want to cover is - The Scales -My general rule of thumb when it comes to this topic is: Don't take the scales and the numbers too seriously, without weighing other important factors.
Their are 2 main reasons for this advise:
- What scale is used can vary - first weight check, peds visit, visit with me
- What your baby is weighed in can vary -naked at birth, different diapers, cloth/disposable, outfit, onsie, hats, mittens socks
- disposable diaper is about half ounce. cloth with wrap can be 4-6 oz. short sleeve onsie - 3 oz, long sleeve onsie with socks can be 7 oz
