Withings wireless baby scale

Have you ever tried to weigh your baby?  Kitchen scales although accurate to ounces don’t go high enough to weigh babies and bathroom scales aren’t accurate enough only measuring to the nearest pound.  So what do you do when you need to weigh your baby?  Use the bathroom scales for an approximate weight?

When my daughter was born there was some concern because she had lost more than 10% of her birth weight in the days after she was born and had to go back into hospital to be monitored.  Thankfully everything turned out fine and a few days later was able to come back home.  In the weeks afterwards we were always concerned if she was putting on weight at a healthy rate, and waiting for health visitors to come and weigh her was an anxious time.

Wouldn’t it be easier if you had a scale yourself and could keep tabs on your little one’s progress?  That’s just what Withings have announced with the world’s first internet connected baby and toddler scale.  You can weigh your baby and the weight is wirelessly transmitted to a device of your choice, be it computer, smart phone or iPad for you to track progress.  You can also use this information to automatically update Facebook or Twitter if you want to be one of those annoying parents, or you can have the updates sent to an email address such as a doctor or health visitor perhaps?

If you want to know when the scale becomes available in the UK then sign up for information.  The price is likely to be quite expensive, but for families who wish to have more than one child it may be well worth the investment.
