Can anyone tell me roughly how much do you take off for clothes and nappy if you weigh your baby with their clothes on?
My DD was previously weighed with no clothes so I need some sort of comparison.

It depends on what she was wearing when weighed.
A singlet, nappy and a one piece suit such as a bonds wondersuit is approx 150 grams. But it would be more if the nappy was wet etc.
When I used to take my boys to get weighed when they were babies I would take similar clothes with me so we could weigh the clothes and then take it off his weight. I had 2 winter babies so stripping them down for a weigh was not always practicle.

Thanks Peta. 150 rang a bell. Yep she had on a singlet a light body suit and nappy.
I'll weigh the clothes next time - good idea. It's a bit of a pain to get bubs all undressed when your doing a quick weigh at the chemist.

I found it much easier to just take the clothes. Now that its getting colder I will be doing the same.

I just make sure I have my baby in the same clothes when she is weighed that way I get an accurate measure on the gain for that fortnight.
Currently she is being weighed in a bonds suit, singlet and nappy. I had extra clothes with me a mth ago to have weighed and they weighed 230gms.
