The Medela BabyWeigh™ II weighing scale is designed to measure your baby’s breast milk intake. This is simply done by measuring your baby’s weight just before nursing and just after finishing a feed.
The BabyWeigh™ II scales are used both by health professionals in hospital and by families in their homes.
The scales are light, making moving and transporting the scales easy. There is an easy to follow display on the scales making it user friendly. The scales are specifically designed to compensate for a moving baby, which can make weighing less stressful.
The BabyWeigh™ II measures breastmilk intake accurately within 2 grams for baby’s weighing up to 44 lbs, ensuring you can continue to monitor their intake as your baby grows.
The BabyWeigh™ II scales are available to rent and can be delivered free to your home in Toronto and the GTA.
Our Medela BabyWeigh™ II scales are all calibrated prior to commencing your rental to ensure they are accurate when you receive them. Scales that are used for extended periods of time will require calibration to ensure accuracy.
Our experience midwife Aislinn will deliver your BabyWeigh™ II scales to you in your home and set up your scales for you at the time of delivery. You will be shown how to use the scales fully at a pace that suits you.
The BabyWeigh™ II scales are deigned to measure your baby’s breast milk intake. Unlike bottle feeding, the volume of milk your baby drinks can not be seen when your baby nurses at the breast. For a healthy, term baby who drinks well from the breast, this is not an issue. However, for babies with health complications or babies that are slow to thrive it can be important to measure their milk intake.
Medela’s BabyWeigh™ II weigh scales give you the opportunity to measure your baby’s milk intake each feed. This can be important to a lot of families if their baby is on a feeding plan or if needs a certain volume of milk each feed, but they want to nurse their baby rather than bottle feed.
Weighing your baby can be stressful and involve worry. If your healthcare professional recommends weighing your baby’s milk intake, weighing your baby can bring reassurance but it is important not to focus primarily on milk intake at one individual feed when monitoring your baby’s development.
Your baby’s growth is a big picture that will involve multiple feeds and weights per day. Weight can fluctuate, and each feed might be different in intake. It is important to discuss what is normal for your baby with your healthcare provider prior to beginning to weigh your baby.
Having a weighing scale at home is a good idea if your baby needs to be weighed frequently to monitor milk intake or development.
Healthy, full term babies who are feeding well do not need to be weighed several times a day or daily. Your baby’s weight and development should be routinely monitored by your health care provider such as your family doctor or midwife. This is typically done a few days after birth and every 2-3 months thereafter up to the age of 12 months. If your doctor or healthcare provider has concerns your baby isn’t appropriate amounts of weight they will arrange more frequent weighing with you or advise you on any issues you are having.
Typically, a baby needs more frequent weight checks when there are concerns for the baby’s development and the rate they are developing. This may be but not limited to:
Baby’s that are born premature
Baby’s with health conditions that may hinder their development
Baby’s who are slow to regain their birth weight
Baby’s with feeding problems
The Medela BabyWeigh™ IIscales are designed to measure your baby’s milk intake by weighing your baby before and after each feed. The scale is easy to follow and will inform you of your baby’s intake within 2 grams of accuracy.
The BabyWeigh™ IIhas been developed following extensive research by Medela. It is commonly used in hospitals and NICUs across Canada and globally.
Discuss the need for a scale with your doctors and health provider. Often, babies that have been weighed frequently in hospital may need to be weighed frequently after discharge. Babies that are mixed feeding between breast and expressed breast milk or formula may need to be weighed if continuing a strict feeding plan at home to measure the baby’s intake amounts.
If your baby does need to be weighed at home or you purely want to continue weighing your baby at home following discharge from hospital, we can deliver your scale to your home either leading up to your baby’s discharge so that you have it ready to use or when your baby is home.

When Maria called me to inform me of some recent night nurse details, she first asked how breast feeding was going and I mentioned how painful it was for me. Immediately, she suggested their lactation consultant Mary, and within 30 minutes she had Mary scheduled to come over to my home in less than 24 hours. I was very emotionally raw at that point, and in a lot of pain from the labour, so it was such a comfort to a) not have to contact someone myself but rather have Maria take the reigns and look after everything. All I had to do was be home the next day for Mary’s visit.
I would highly recommend Mary, and the New Mommy Company. The quality of customer service we received was outstanding. With minimal family and this being our first child, my husband and I had such a sense of relief and comfort with the help of Mary and a Night Nanny. It’s been a privileged working with both of them.
