At pediatrician's: The most accurate baby weight is done with an infant scale. Your physician or nurse will have one available and often will weigh your baby without an appt. A less accurate way is to have your own scale, weight yourself, and then hold the baby and weigh yourself again and calculate the difference. However most adult scales are not accurate for small weight changes.
