Anyone know of a weighing clinic open on Thursdays?


Recommended Posts

I was supposed to get my baby weighed yesterday and couldn't make it as I was ill. He hasn't been weighed for nearly 3 weeks so Id love to know his weight as otherwise will need to wait until first week of Jan.


I normally go to Townley Road but that's Wednesdays only I believe.


Thanks!

Have never done it differently with either kid but was lucky to have chubby-but-not-super-chubby, non-spitting-up, pretty well eating kids. If your baby isn't particularly skinny (or excessively chubby) based on its looks I would think you don't even have to bother with the home scale either :-$ Sorry I know social services will be after me within a week but we're kind of overdoing this weighing clinic thing IMO :-$

Ditto. took my second to the HV to be weighed twice and that was because I took pity on her as she was so nice and was encouraging mums to go along. Can imagine that many people find it a comfort - whilst some find it stress inducing. Some just like to see their baby's growth 'progress' on that red book chart! Usually just weighed at home when was wondering If he'd just put on lots of weight or I was getting old and tired!

We weigh our son by putting him in the door bouncer harness (we know it weighs EXACTLY 340g) and then weighing him with a excess luggage...er...measurer thing. It's not 110% accurate, but it gets the job done. An idea for the future perhaps?


I believe there used to be a HV/baby weigh drop in clinic at 'baby and me' which is at the surestart centre on Bantry St SE5. I think it's from 1-3? USed to be in the dulwich/camberwell 'lets go' events listings.

    • Leon is super-helpful and very easy to deal with. Called him first thing on Saturday morning and he was here within a few hours. Quickly identified the problem, sorted it, didn’t charge me for a part either. I really recommend him. 
    • When I watch the clouds from my window they quite often appear like very slow-moving lines of vehicles on a multi-lane highway, gradually edging forward. So I was rather doubtful when I just now saw them creep forward a very small amount, pause a short while, and then make a small reverse, more or less back to the point they'd advanced from.  Another pause, and then the same repeated.  And again and again.   More perhaps like a small moored boat, being blown by the wind.  I don't at this moment remember seeing anything quite like that before, at least for it to seem so memorable, though possibly i have, and forgotten. I doubt it's peculiar to Dulwich, but Dulwich is where I happen to be, and it is nature.  So hello clouds.
