How to Measure
When using a digital scale, make sure it is fully charged (solar), has fresh batteries or is connected to a reliable power source.
To measure an child’s weight using a digital standing scale
- Remove the child’s shoes, clothing and diaper
- Have an adult stand centered on the scale
- Press the “tare” function; this will zero the scale
- Weigh the adult holding the child
- Find the weight to the nearest 0.1 kilograms; this is the child’s weight
