Make your nursery a little smarter, safer and more connected with Smart Nursery products from Target. The Motorola Smart Nursery Mother & Baby Scale has put me more in touch with the health of my newborn. My daughter was born weighing 6 pounds 14 ounces, we left the hospital 24 hours later and she weighed in at 6 pounds 9 ounces. At her first pediatrician appointment at four days old she dropped five more ounces.
Weight loss right after birth is completely normal, but now we needed to see her gain. I started the journey of tracking her weight on day five. I was waiting for my milk to fully come in and wanted to make sure my newborn was getting a sufficient supply. As they say, when you stop worrying things just happen. The moment I stopped stressing about my milk supply, bam my milk dropped (and boy did it drop). I’ll save that story for another time ;). By week two I began to notice a crankier and more restless baby, so we were back at the pediatricians office. Since I was tracking her weight each morning with the Motorola MBP84SN Smart Nursery Mother & Baby Scale, I knew I had a little reason to be concerned with her lack of weight gain.
My very fussy girl only wanted short feedings. She wanted to eat, but cried during and after which stressed us both out. I pumped, suplemented with formula, but nothing was helping her get relief. She didn’t spit up in any alarming way, so I didn’t necessarily think it was reflux. As my daughters best advocate I asked her pediatrician many questions and didn’t concede to the idea that she is a newborn and newborns cry. It turns out Miesha has silent reflux. She was spitting up and swallowing most of it back, which made us unaware that it was even happening. We went home that day with a prescription for alleviating the pain of reflux and a ton of ideas to help her feel better and most importantly eat.
Two weeks later, my daughter has made remarkable strides, doesn’t cry after eating and is gaining weight like a champ. Thanks to the Motorola MBP84SN Smart Nursery Mother & Baby Scale I can track her weight gain and my weight loss with ease.
