Why do babies need to be weighed?
It is essential to record a regular weight of new-born babies to ensure that they are developing and growing at an expected rate. Weight is used as a primary indication for health problems and can detect if a new-born is underweight or overweight based on a regulated development plan or grow charts.
It is recommended that parents have babies checked regularly, however this will largely depend on the stage of the baby's development. As a general guide: Check-ups are recommended once a month for babies up to the age of 6 months, every few months between 6-12 months and every 3-4 months for children over 12 months old.
