Scales for newborns
Progress does not stand still, and if earlier, to weigh a newborn child, you had to go to a polyclinic or refine yourself with conventional scales, now it can be done easily and simply at home using special weights for a newborn. Another question is whether it is always a rational waste of money? And who and when do we really need a scales for a newborn?
The weight of a child, especially in the first year of life, is really important. Since on the basis of how and how much the child adds to weight, the state of his health is assessed.
Control weighting of the child may be required to determine the degree of lactation in the nursing mother (enough milk). Also, regular weighing helps to monitor how much the child eats during feeding (overeating, malnourished). On the basis of these data, if necessary, a correction is made for the feeding of the baby.
When choosing the weights for a newborn, first of all it is necessary to pay attention to quality and safety.
Scales for newborns should be made of environmentally friendly and safe material (usually plastic).
The scales (the pallet for the baby) should have high sides so that the baby does not roll off the scale.
