I saved $20

The pediatrician likes to schedule an appointment a few days after birth, mostly to check the baby's weight. The doctor likes a baby to gain back to the hospital discharge weight by one week. Since I had a Thursday discharge from the hospital, I got lucky and didn't have to go until Monday. But today when I woke up, I realized how much I did not want to take Rachel to the doctor today. It was cold, my pelvis is still sore, and most of all I didn't want to pay a $20 copay to have a nurse weigh my baby. So, I got out my trusty postage scale and cake pan and weighed her myself. She achieved her goal and weighs 7 lbs. 11 oz. So I called the doctor's office, and rescheduled for next Monday. $20 can buy a lot of diapers.
