Hospital grade scale rentals

Does anyone on here rent a scale to see how much BM LO is eating?

If so, how much do they cost and does your insurance cover it (yes, I'm aware all insurances are different)?

Can you buy one, or is the hospital-grade the way to go?

Thanks!

Re: Hospital grade scale rentals

  • I've been debating this, myself and will be interested to see the responses.

    It is so tempting to be able to *know* how much LO is getting, but I think I would probably just drive myself crazy if I had a scale in my house. Same reason I never bought a doppler.

    I do, however, bring him to the clinic for weight checks every week or so. That gives me the peace of mind that I need to trust in this whole BF thing.
