How often should my baby be weighed?

After the first 2 weeks, your baby should be weighed:

  • no more than once a month up to 6 months of age
  • no more than once every 2 months from 6 to 12 months of age
  • no more than once every 3 months over the age of 1

Your baby will usually only be weighed more often than this if there are concerns about their health or growth.

Your baby's length may also be measured at some of their developmental reviews.
