Product Description

The Health-o-Meter HDC100-01 "Grow with Me" Teddy Bear Scale is a first-of-its kind consumer baby and toddler scale. As your child grows, the scale easily converts from a tray to a platform, making this a versatile and cost-effective device for weighing your child as he develops from a newborn to a toddler. The large, easy-to-read 1.2-inch LCD display is front-facing so reading the weight is a breeze. Also, for added accuracy with small children, the scale weighs in half-pound increments up to 60 pounds. Calibration is a snap with a "zero out" feature that allows you to adjust for the weight of clothing or a diaper. The scale can be operated with or without the tray. When using the tray, make sure that it is securely locked into place before placing your baby on the scale. Simply lay your baby on the tray and read the display. To use the scale without the tray, you'll need to remove the tray by turning the locking nut clockwise. The tray is replaced by four rubber plugs and a supplied plastic cover tab. Once the cover is in place, hold your baby upright on the scale, and place the baby's feet so that the weight is evenly distributed. Of course, everyone knows that a baby rarely holds still. Health o Meter has an answer. If your child is moving, press the "Hold" button to lock in the correct weight. This function displays the baby's average weight for the time period.

The large, easy-to-read 1.2-inch LCD display is front-facing so reading the weight is a breeze. Also, for added accuracy with small children, the scale weighs in half-pound increments up to 60 pounds. Calibration is a snap with a "zero out" feature that allows you to adjust for the weight of clothing or a diaper. This scale is powered by a replaceable nine-volt battery (not included), includes a growth chart to track height and weight against national averages, and it is backed by a five-year limited warranty.

Operating the Scale
Place the scale on flat, level surface. A hard surface, such as a tile or linoleum floor, is the best for maximum accuracy. If the scale is placed on a soft, deep rug, then it may not produce accurate results. Once the scale is placed on an appropriate surface, press On/Off and wait for the display to show zeros. If the display shows "0:0", the scale is set to pounds/ounces; if the display shows "0.00" the scale is set to kilograms/grams. Press the lb/kg button to select between pounds or kilograms.

The scale can be operated with or without the tray. When using the tray, make sure that it is securely locked into place before placing your baby on the scale. Simply lay your baby on the tray and read the display. To use the scale without the tray, you'll need to remove the tray by turning the locking nut clockwise.

    I have a little one with very little weight gain. Purchasing this scale helped to keep the doctor visit costs down. The scale works perfect for us. It was worth every penny.

  • Great purchase
    I purchased this baby scale for my brand new preemie granddaughter. Nurses suggested my daughter-in-law keep a log of the baby's progress. When the baby was back at the hospital for a check up, her weight on the hospital scale was identical to her weight on the scale at home. It looks like this product is a winner!...more info
  • Good Choice
    I am breastfeding my infant son and purchased this scale to record his weight gain. I have found this scale to be accurate and is nice to record the weight gain in between the pediatric visits. The quality is nice and I like that fact that we can use this until he is 60 pounds....more info
  • AWESOME SCALE!!
    THIS SCALE IS WONDERFUL. GIVES YOU PRECISE WEIGHT DOWN TO THE .5 OUNCE AND IT IS COMPACT ENOUGH I KEEP IT ON THE BATHROOM COUNTER. WHEN MY TWINS GET OLD ENOUGH THE TOP PART REMOVES AND IT BECOMES A TODDLER SCALE. IT WORKS REALLY WELL AND I USE IT EVERYNIGHT....more info
  • Great Cat Scale
    I bought this scale to monitor my cat's weight. After initially freaking out, my cat now calmly stands on his scale until his weight is calculated.
    The scale is a little expensive, but seems sturdy and I have had no problems. The weight also correlates to the vet's, so I am fairly confident with the accuracy....more info
  • Grow with Me Scale
    This scale is easy to use, very sturdy. The display is also easy to read. We didn't realize it would change to become a bathroom scale for a toddler, but everyone who has visited the baby has remarked that it was a wonderful idea to have a scale that you could keep on using. ...more info
  • Good deal and easy to use
    This scale has been working great for us. My son has a rare genetic liver disorder and this has cause him not to gain weight very much. I needed something that can monitor his weight by the oz, and the resolution of this scale is to the 1/2 oz, which is more than sufficient for our purpose. I can also use the sacle for my daughters who are 5 and 3 years old. The scale is light weight and does not take up a lot of room. I definitely recommend this product. ...more info
  • Parts Problem
    The scale works great, but I purchased it to weigh parcels for shipment; and when I removed the tray and tried to insert the plugs, they didn't fit correctly. They kept falling out because they were too small. I contacted the company via email and I was surprised to learn that they won't just send me replacement parts. They want me to send the scale to a company in Missouri for repair, which will take four to six weeks. Not liking this at all....more info
  • Great Product! I Absolutely Recommend!
    I ordered this product because my baby was premature. It works great. I would weigh my baby before I go to the doctor and it is always only 1 or 2 ozs off. So I think that is very accurate for a digital scale. The zero out feature is a plus. You can lay a blanket down instead of laying baby down on cold plastic!!!...more info
  • excellent
    if you are looking for a great priced, good quality scale to check baby's weight or within a half an ounce determine how much feeding baby is getting, this is the scale for you. great deal and worth the money....more info
  • Great product
    works well, love the "zero out" function so baby can be weighed with a soft blanket. It even survived a fall from the changing table onto hardwood floor! I don' know why amazon calls me "a disappointd buyer" because I was not at all disappointed with this!...more info
  • This is the one
    We are breastfeeding our newborn, so having this scale gives me peace of mind knowing how much milk she is getting.
    Two features really make this stand out: the hold feature and the zero-out feature.

    (Hold) allows you to weigh a baby that moves around a lot. When she moves in the tray, By pressing the Hold button, the scale takes an average of its readings over the course of a couple seconds.

    The Zero-Out feature is great for weighing babies.After you put a blanket and a diaper on the tray, press the Zero Out button and the scale resets the 0 point so when you weigh the baby, her true weight will show up on the LCD.
    We really like this scale it is made very well and it does it all. ...more info
  • Excellent Scale for the money.
    All the features of this scale are made with ease of use in mind. The tray holds the baby with out worry. The hold function takes the guess work out of a squriming infant's weight. The adaptability for the future is also designed for ease of use as well as making it fun for your toddler. ...more info
  • Great Buy
    The Health O Meter was a great buy. I purchased it to keep account of my premature infant's weight. Its accuracy was very good. It was right on target with the doctor's scale. It's easy to use and I am happy that I will be able to use it for many more years since it turns into a toddler scale. I highly recommend this scale....more info
  • Wonderful scale
    I bought this scale to help keep up with my daughters growth. She was only 4 pounds 12 ounces when she came home from the hospital and it was important to me to track her weight at home. This scale is very accurate and all of the features are wonderful. I would not be without this wonderful scale at home. Every new mom should have one....more info
  • Grow With Me Teddy Bear Scale
    This scale has been easy to use and quite accurate. We are looking forward to the grow option....more info
  • Easy to use
    My husband and I purchased this scale to keep track of our daughter's weight. This scale is light weight and easy to use. We use this item every week and will continue to use it throughout her childhood. I highly recommend this scale due to its ease of use, light weight, and ability to go from an infant scale to a toddler scale....more info
  • Baby Scale
    Easy to use. Great item to keep up with baby's growth right into toddler....more info
  • Great scale
    We had some breastfeeding problems with our newborn, so having this scale gives me peace of mind knowing how much milk she is getting. Also buying this scale was cheaper than renting one from my lactation consultant....more info
  • Great product
    This scale gives us peace of mind that our baby is thriving....plus it is fun to weight him between doctor's appts. I am glad we bought this....more info
  • Love this product
    This scale has been perfect for our Preemie! We were having such weight problems when he first came home so we bought this scale, and it has been pretty accurate. At most its off by an ounce or two compared to the doctors scales but not enough to make a difference. it was a good buy and for a great price for a digital scale....more info
  • Works great
    The scale itself works great to get my daugthers weight and saves me trips to the Peditricians office every 2 weeks. The screw that keeps the top portion attached does not come off. It was striped the first time we used it. So we cannot get my sons weigth now. But other than that, great product....more info
  • Great Baby Scale
    This scale is terrific, and has brought me much peace of mind. As a breastfeeding first-time mom, I was anxious about whether my daugther was getting enough to eat, especially since she had a difficult time regaining her birth weight in the beginning. Being able to check her weight once a week is a great relief. Caution, do not check your baby's weight too often (like each day) because the scale is so sensitive that whether or not your baby has had a bowel movement that day can affect the reading. Since infants gain about an ounce a day, checking one a week will give an accurate picture of if the baby is gaining or losing weight in total. The scale is light enough to carry in one hand (baby in other), low enough to slide under a crib and relatively inexpensive....more info
  • This is a really good scale
    I agree with the others: this is really a great scale for weighing babies and pets.

    First of all, it's very accurate. Of course, as with all digital scales, if you put the weight on and then take it off and then put it back on again, you won't get the exact same reading twice. It's just the nature of digital scales (somethign to do with variations in the inductive current). But with this scale the variations are small.

    Two features really make this stand out: the hold feature and the zero-out feature.

    "Hold" allows you to weigh a baby or pet that moves around a lot. When the subject moves in the tray, the scale will register different weight readings (because the point of impact changes). By pressing the Hold button, the scale takes an average of its readings over the course of a couple seconds. This average is usually more representative of the subject's true weight. This is just a great feature, as any parent or pet owner can attest.

    The Zero-Out feature is great for weighing babies. Babies wear diapers. Also, when you weigh a baby, you shuold put a blanket on teh tray because the plastic tray is hard and cold. After you put a blanket and a diaper on the tray, press the Zero Out button and the scale resets the 0 point so when you weigh the baby, his or her true weight will show up on the LCD. This saves you the hassle of having to subtract the blanket-cum-diaper weight yourself. This even allows you to weigh the baby with clothing on; just pre-weigh and zero out the extra weight first.

    I love this scale. I just hope it lasts for a long time. BTW it's good for weight up to 60 lbs. As the baby grows into a child, just remove the tray (held by a single screw) and the child can stand on the scale....more info
  • Teddy Bear Baby to Toddle Scale
    Great value - works great & is simple to use!...more info
  • Very helpful purchase
    We had a baby that was not eating properly (nursing)and had actually lost weight. I didn't trust that she was getting enough milk so we not only weighed her but used it to measure her intake. The scale was not as accurate as the professional one we rented at first but it wasn't as expensive either. Although, the measurements weren't perfect they were pretty close. I highly recommend the scale! It has helped bring me a lot of peace of mind....more info
  • Perfect for accurate weighing
    It works great and is bang for the buck at amazon.com - I can weigh almost everything under 60lb to the last oz or gram accuracy.
    - San...more info
  • Best Scale Ever!!!
    I love this scale! The "hold" feature is the best part... normally, when baby is kicking and fussing you can't get an accurate number (the weight jumps around with the baby's movements)... not this scale, just press the "hold" key and the scale will automatically calculate the accurate weight - no more guessing an average! Also, I love the fact that I can continue to use this scale beyond newborn stage... a great investment for years to come. ...more info
  • Love It
    Where was this scale when I had my first baby!!! I love this scale!! It is so versatile. I can put my 3 month old on then my 19 month old on with no problems and with just a turn of the screw I can weigh my 4 year old and 7 year old!! I cannot say enough good things about this scale!!...more info
  • Good scale
    Easy to use. Both lbs and kg, though accuracy in kg is higher. Accurate up to 1/2 oz or 10g. The "Hold" feature, which automatically takes multiple readings and averages them, is reasonably useful for weighing moving subjects. The same 9V battery has lasted for over 3 years and is still going strong....more info
  • Great Cat Scale
    I bought this scale to monitor my cat's weight. After initially freaking out, my cat now calmly stands on his scale until his weight is calculated.
    The scale is a little expensive, but seems sturdy and I have had no problems. The weight also correlates to the vet's, so I am fairly confident with the accuracy....more info
  • I hate Amazon
    Amazon is such a worst company, worst customer support, worst policies with delivery. Buy products from some American company, where they have call center in USA....more info
  • Great scale
    I got this for my preemie after he was having weight issues. We were nursing and we never knew how much he was getting as he never seemed satified. The lactation nurse suggested weighting him occasionally after feedings. As a test we weighted some empty bottles, then added 2-8 oz of milk. It always read perfect. So we have been weighing our little one before and after random feedings. It does show a different between when he eats well and when he is not so interested. As a nurse I feel it has been a good reference and makes me more confident to continue nursing....more info
  • Love this scale!
    I love this scale for weighing my baby and my chihuahua. I wanted to make sure my baby was gaining weight appropriately between doctors visits. Its heavy and durable, the part where you put the baby is plenty big. I like the tare and hold function. Overall, much better product than I anticipated for the price....more info
  • quality scale
    I'm very happy with this scale. It seems like a good quality product and I really love the 'hold' feature - very useful with a wiggly baby!...more info
  • Good scale
    This is a good scale for infants. Its within 4 oz of the readings we get at the doctor's office. We do wish it was a little longers so that our baby's legs wouldn't stick out (she's 10 months now). The "hold" feature that allows you to get a weight even when the baby is moving, fidgeting, squirming etc is great....more info
  • Baby scale works well for cats
    I bought this scale to weight kittens and cats. It zeros out quickly and seems to be quite accurate. So far a good investment for my needs....more info
  • Great product
    This scale is perfect for weighing my baby and makes a first time mom feel better knowing her baby is gaining weight properly. It has a hold feature for when the baby won't stay still as well as a button that subtracts the weight of a diaper,blanket, etc.. for a more accurate reading. I weighed my baby the morning of her doctor's visit and it showed the same weight as the doctor's scale, so it is accurate....more info
  • Not just for two leggers
    Bought the scale to weigh my 24 lb. cat as he loses weight. Cat weight loss needs to be slow and measured in ounces not pounds like people. Very accurate and the hold button is a great feature. Would definitely recommend this product. It may seem a bit spendy at first---Well worth the money for accurate weight. P.S. Last weigh in was 21.1 lbs....more info
  • Very pleased!!!!!
    Extremely happy with this purchase. I am breastfeeding and wanted to make sure that my baby was gaining the proper amount of weight. This scale not only works great, but is very accurate when compared to the results I get from the scale used at my doctors. I would definitely recommend this product....more info
  • Great Pet Scale
    I have a cat that suddently stopped eating on its own. I need to track its weight daily. This scale is perfect for my needs, as it weighs in 1/2 ounce increments, and the hold feature makes it possible to get an accurate reading on an animal that really doesn't want to be there! It also gives the same reading as my vet's scale, so I am confident of its accuracy....more info
  • Accurate scale
    We bought this to weigh both my newborn and toddler on. It is very accurate and we like it a lot. We got ours for $60, I guess the price went up a bit. The only gripe I have about this scale is that it is hard to figure out my toddler's weight because he moves so much and the weight reading doesn't stabilize. I've seen some baby scales with an "averaging" feature -- the scale will rest on a number and the number will read out on the screen. My active 2 year old moves so much that the numbers bounce up and down and it is impossible to know his actual weight (unless he is calm - a rarity)...more info
  • Great scale.
    We've been using this for more than a year for my daughter. It's a great scale with nice read out and hold feature. Have only changed battery once in more than a year. Cost much less than the cost of renting one for a month. You can also remove the tray once the kid can stand....more info
  • LOVE IT!
    Great price! Great product! We loved weighing our little girl in this when she was an infant. Now that she's older it's nice that we can take off the cradle and use it as a normal standing scale. Loved the chart book that came with it to! ...more info
  • great scale
    Love it! I'm addicted to watching my baby son progress daily :) Just went to the pediatrician's office, and their scale was pretty close to this one. ...more info
  • Accurate
    This is a must-have for new parents! The scale is extremely accurate and reliable. It is sensitive enough to measure items weighing one-half of an ounce (a small diaper, for example). The "Hold" feature which measures the average weight is handy especially if your infant won't lie still. It also has features that probably won't be widely used, for example, the zero-out feature. The surface that holds the baby could have been made a little more comfortable....more info
  • Great baby scale
    We bought this for our daughter when our grandson was born. She loves it. It's a great way to keep track of his growth. She really likes the feature that will hold the weight reading while he is moving around....more info
  • very helpful
    When our baby started spitting up and vomiting when he was 2 months old, we were so worried about if he got enough milk. Having this scale really helped to soothe our anxiety. Also we can plot his weight on a growth chart to watch his development, rather than waiting for the regular checks at the hospital.
    If your baby is a spitter, I would recommend this scale to you....more info
  • Great scale for the money
    I used this to roughly estimate my daughter's intake when we were encountering milk supply difficulties. It helped assure me over a period of a few months that we were improving. I initially rented a much more accurate and expensive scale until I knew we were doing better then purchased this so I could keep tabs in general. (Note: if you have milk supply difficulties please see a lactation consultant for assistance.)

    It was easy to use when she was an infant. Now that she's a toddler it's hard to get her to stand still on the base unit so I've actually packed this up and stored it until she's less squirmy....more info
  • great for pets
    I do the "great bunny weigh in" on this scale. I have pet rabbits that I monitor their weight monthly for good health reasons. This scale has a digital display with pounds and ounces which is great since their weight changes in small amounts. It allows you to put a towel on it and "zero out" so you know you are getting an acurate reading of the weight. It is a perfect size for a small pet (probably up to 15-20lbs. It is not too large which makes it easy for storing. I am happy I purchased this scale!...more info
  • Worked for my girl!
    We needed to keep an eye on my 1 year old daughter's weight and this scale was even better than we expected! Love it... we probably even use it more than we should! :) ...more info
  • It just works
    I've had this for months and I can't remember having any issues with it. It just seems to work and work well. Plus, it's designed well and seems to be a quality (well-made) scale. If only everything were like this....more info
  • It's perfect!
    This scale works very well and it is extremely accurate. Our baby entered this world at only 4.5 lbs and it was therefore very important for us to measure each ounce he gained. Very easy to use, it's ready in about 1 second from when you turn it on and the hold button works great if your baby is moving around....more info
  • Well built, reliable, accurate...
    This is the first baby scale I've used, but it really seems to do the job well. Construction is sturdy and attractive. The "hold" feature which compensates for a moving baby is great. It is a fantastic deal for the money I paid for it. I can't ask for more. :)...more info
  • No More Guessing
    I am very pleased with this purchase. The scale has been very accurate and it gives me peace of mind because I do not have to wait until my son's doctor appointments to know his weight. Knowing his weight has enabled me to buy the correct size diapers and clothes for him....more info
