Do I need a scale?
After birth, babies lose weight. This is a normal process after birth. By the time two weeks have gone by, most babies will have regained their birthweight. Tracking the weight of the baby is important because it can reflect problems with the baby’s health or transferring ability.
The answer to the question, however, is entirely dependent on your own situation and your baby’s needs. Your nurse, midwife, doctor or lactation consultant may ask you to get a scale. They may ask you to weigh your baby on a more regular basis after seeing your baby. This could be to help monitor your baby’s ability to transfer milk from the breast or purely to monitor your baby’s progressive weight gain.
If you have any questions about weighing your baby please reach out to us at 832-441-0111
When might I need or want a hospital grade breast pump?
If you are planning to feed your baby breast milk but not breastfeed, you will most likely want (and need!) a double electric pump.
Also if your baby is premature a hospital grade pump can help as its motor is stronger than a typical personal motor pump.
Another situation a hospital grade pump might be helpful is if your baby is too sick to breastfeed. Again it offers a stronger suction than other motorized or hand pumps.
Lastly, if you have issues withlow milk supply, a hospital grade pump is the best option.
