Hospital Grade Scale, Rental
The BabyWeigh II Scale provides accurate measurement of baby’s weight just before and just after breastfeeding. The difference between these two weights equals breastmilk intake. Scale is accurate to 1-2 mls of milk.
This scale is perfect for new parents of preterm infants just discharged from the NICU or babies that are slow weight gainers. Many mothers are anxious that their infant may not be getting enough milk at the breast and are more likely to supplement with a bottle. Research has shown that if mothers are able to weigh their infant each day or with feeding they gain the confidence to continue to breastfeed without supplementation.
If you find your little one is not transferring enough milk or gaining weight slowly please consider seeing an IBCLC for breastfeeding support.
Average weight gain for newborns is 1/2-1 ounce daily.
