Weighing Scale for infants are a vital piece of equipment in any hospital’s toolkit. An integral element of keeping track of a newborn’s safe continuing development is assessing the baby’s weight and growth precisely and consistently.

They are used to weigh the newborn and confirm their birth weight. The infant is then regularly weighed and observed throughout its development to make absolutely sure that weight variations are healthy.

Why is it so important to weigh your child?

A newborn may gain between 140 and 200 grams per week and grow approximately 1.5 and 2.5 centimetres per month from birth to age 6 months. Around the age of five months, you can expect your baby’s weight to have doubled.

Because of the daily weight difference caused by feeding times, urination, bowel movements, etc., you should weigh your infant every week. Baby should be checked and evaluated by a doctor right away if the weight remains consistent and you are mindful that your baby has either been gaining no weight or losing weight.

Consider whether your kid is receiving the appropriate amount of nutrition if their weight increases but still doesn’t seem enough.

 Even if everything appears fine, you might still have your kid checked out to be sure the weight is normal. 

Why is buying baby scales at home preferable?

A baby’s primary task is to grow, and weight increase is a crucial characteristic that your child is receiving adequate nutrition and is developing and growing adequately.

By keeping a set of baby scales at home, you can avoid making routine doctor visits to monitor the baby’s weight.

You can weigh your baby anytime you want if you have a baby scale at home! Baby scales can be purchased in a wide range of designs. To secure an accurate measurement, the scale must record weight in units as little as 10 grams.

What qualities should a good Weighing Scale have?

  • Make sure the scale’s accompanying tray is large enough when buying a baby weighing scale. Sometimes, suppliers implement a tiny tray to make the scale smaller. The drawback is that there is a likelihood the baby will slip out of the tray if it snuggles within.
  • There must be a height adjustment option for the tray. Swisser provides this function because we care about your child’s security. We also manufacture many different kinds of weighing machines including the Table Top Weighing Scale.
  • To be transported around and fixed up in various locations, baby scales used by visiting doctors and medical professionals should also be portable and lightweight.
  • Ideally, your baby Weighing Scale will include a zero button. Usually, while a baby is kept on a tray, a soft cushioning or pillow is used to support the child. In this situation, the weight of the pillow or cushion must be deducted from the total value. Have a key for this so you don’t have to do it by yourself.
  • Hygiene is a core part of baby scales in order to limit the threat of contamination. The scale must be disinfected after each usage, and any spills must be mopped up with a surface that is easy to wipe down.
  • Make doubly sure the Center of Gravity of the scales sold by weighing scale suppliers in India is low. This will assure that even if all of the weight is focused on one end, the scale won’t tip. 

Also, take note that the scale won’t be on the ground, instead, it will be placed on a table. Flipping the scale could result in the infant sliding to the ground, which could be fatal.

Tips for using baby scales to weigh your child

  • It is suggested that you weigh your newborn naked. Hold your hands above him to comfort him; do not put your hands on his chest, as this will result in an incorrect reading. Make a note of the numbers.
  • If it’s too cold outside, weigh your child’s clothing separately before dressing him or her for the weigh-in. The weight displayed on the scale should be adjusted from the weight of the clothes.
  • To secure the scales, always set them down on a solid surface. Use your dining room table. A wooden floor functions similarly. Ensure that the ground is level and flat.

Tips on maintaining the weighing scales: 

Just as crucial as the actual weighing is, maintaining the cleanliness and hygiene standards of medical equipment is equally important.

To effectively stop the transmission of illnesses, scales in a medical setting should be professionally disinfected and cleaned regularly.

Cleaning the scale can perhaps increase the scale’s lifespan. 

Here are the best cleaning recommendations for scales.

  • Scales can be sanitised, at the appropriate time, and according to the proper protocol by following a documented cleaning procedure.
  • Before you start cleaning, it’s crucial to unplug the scale from the power source to protect both your safety and the security of those around you.

Clean the scale to avoid any debris from getting inside the inner workings. Restart the scale to ensure it is functioning efficiently.

  • The scale may become damaged if too much water enters its interior chambers. Avoid using high-pressure washers or excess volumes of water.
  • The use of alcohol-based wipes is recommended to maintain your scale. This aids in preventing the spread of any bacteria that could be present on your scale. Strong acids should not be used to clear the scale.
