Mikey1969: No Such Agency: And owning your own baby scale is just dumb. Do you own a bathroom scale? Congratulations, you can weigh your baby. Not rocket science.Maybe we just have too much money.Excerpt that babies are weighed in pounds and ounces when they are that small. Also, speaking from experience, have you ever tried to hold a baby in place on a regular bathroom scale without getting a faulty reading off of the scale? Any pressure downwards to hold the baby on the flat(If you're lucky) scale will tweak the results. Not only that, but the tray on that baby scale is curved on the edges and babies will roll right the fark off of a regular bathroom scale. I don't remember which baby I weighed and why, but it was a pain in the ass...
Copperbelly watersnake: To be fair to the parents, your get through the birth with mom and child safety and sound only to have the hospital hand you materials on SIDS (SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROM). SIDS is where some infants just stop breathing for no apparent reason. Oh, and if the infant rolls onto their stomach it may increase their chance of SIDS. Something my first child did right after getting home from the hospital. Kind of hard not to get paranoid.The wife wonders why I don't want to have another one. I'm getting too old for that little sleep.
