MUM has come up with an ingenious solution for weighing a newborn son by pasting it on a set of M & S fruit and vegetable scales.
The weight of Freddy Jaye Moss, 10 weeks old, has been a mystery since the baby clinic was closed due to Covid. However, 31-year-old mother Tasha finds an old-style machine while shopping and decides to make sure her little kid is wearing pounds.
And the good news is that Freddy Jaye, who weighed 6 pounds and 5 ounces, tilts the scale at 10 pounds and 4 ounces.
Tasha said: I had just fed him, so I saw the scales. I said, “Shall we weigh him right away?”
“I haven’t let him weigh for so long. It’s obviously not as accurate as the digital one, but it gave me an idea of his weight.”
Tasha said she expected her baby son to cry — but he liked being on the scale. She added: “I was relieved to know that he was gaining weight. I am doing the right thing.
“Until I zoomed in, I didn’t notice the” bunch of picks “sign in the background. “
Pal Natalie Atkins took this photo with her three mothers Tasha at a store in Reading, Burks and posted it online above.

Social media users praised Tasha’s quick thinking. One person wrote: “This is original.” Another said, “Can I do this the next time I go shopping?”
From Finchampstead in Burks, Tasha adds:
