How to Measure Your Baby’s Weight

Put them on a scale, right?  Well, no.  Unless you have a scale designed for weights under 15kg (30 lbs).  Bathroom scales are designed for the weights of adults, adolescents, and older children.  You can bypass this problem by using the subtraction method.  Hold your baby and take a reading.  Then hand Baby to someone else and take a second reading.  The difference will be a good estimate of your baby’s weight.

The following video illustrates the procedure.
