Immediately after being born your little baby is generally placed on your chest for that all invaluable ‘skin to skin’.
Shortly after that your new family addition will have its’ very first ‘weigh-in’ which is broadly documented in our health professional notes as it’s ‘birthweight’.
As a little tip, I always encourage partners to take a picture of your new arrival on the scales as one their first pics to add to their ‘baby album’. Apart from the fact it makes a great keepsake, it’s also a great reference!
While the general population use pounds and ounces, we in the healthcare world only use kilograms, so make sure you get the kg version!
This will also make a great picture for them on their 18th birthday.. !
Happy snapping everyone….
