Why are you weighing so often? NHS advice is something like not more than once every 3 months at that age, for most healthy babies.

You are definitely weighing too often.

Have you got concerns about his weight in general?

blimey I had no idea... I said to gp a few months back....monthly.he said mw prefer 2 weeks. So I went ahead with getting scales. WHO says every 4 weeks max. so then went for every 3 wks!

thats such a relief....as he seems just fine in himself.

So every 3 months??

If he's 11 months he should have a 1 year check with the health visitor coming up soon? They'll weigh him then and it will give you a chance to discuss any concerns and how often he should be weighed going forward.

thanks so much...just checked on NHS and says yes

no more than once a month up to six months of age
no more than once every two months from 6-12 months of age
no more than once every three months over the age of one

I wouldn't bother weighing at all, it really doesn't mean a thing unless you are seeing an obvious failure to thrive.
