Free Baby Weight Checks
Weight Checks are by appointment only and offered at advertised events. You can see our events posted on our Facebook page.
Weight checks are the best way a mother can be assured that her breastfed baby is getting enough milk.
Weight checks are offered FREE at Best Start. Good times to weigh your baby are:
- 3 to 5 days after hospital discharge
- 1 week
- 2 weeks
- 6 weeks
- anytime you have concerns or worry that baby may not be gaining properly
Many moms come by to weigh just to watch their baby growing! You are always welcome.
Best Start has the medical grade Medela BabyWeigh™ scales that are accurate to 2 grams (.2 of an ounce). These scales are used in hospitals, physicians’ offices and clinics. They can even tell you how much milk your baby is taking during a breastfeeding.
