Re: How accurate are bathroom scales to weigh toddlers??
Okay... doing it that way.. it come out that he is 26.8 exactly!! When I put him on himself this time it said 27 even... Wow, I have a little 2 yo boy! I can't believe I have been going around thinking it was 30lbs+.. that 3 lbs makes a big difference in such a small child.. If I remember correctly, he had on his shoes and all last they weighed him at the dr.. I think his clothes and shoes (being COLD so thicker clothing) must have accounted for 2-3 lbs! Plus, I know he had his breakfast before that appt.. It makes sense if he was really say 26 lbs then, instead of the 28.8 they said he was in Jan! SO, that makes me feel better that it looks like he's gained at least .8 since then.. Make sense? LOL!
