Baby scale is an equipment useful for mothers concerned about low milk supply. A baby scale is described as a tool to verify baby's weight gain and also the amount of breast milk received in any given nursing.

By weighing the baby using the baby scale, before and after nursing and doing a little subtraction, a nursing mother can determine the number of ounces the baby nursed from the breast. Since a nursing baby is usually more efficient than any breast pump, this method is preferred to breast pumping for determining how much milk the baby may be getting. For these purposes a baby scale accurate to 15 grams or less may be rented from many breast pump rental stations.
