Measuring a baby’s weight is essential if you want to see if he or she is growing as they should. As a parent, it provides peace of mind in those early months and years when you want to know that your child is healthy.
Usually, babies are weighed at birth and then on a regular basis by a midwife or health visitor.
Your business could be fined if unsuitable scales are being used for the purposes of weighing items to determine a price.
Legally, Trade Approved scales must be used when weighing in commercial transactions – and inappropriate use could mean a large penalty and the scale could be forfeited.
