The Metric System


While your baby is in the hospital, everything involving him will be measured using the metric system. From how much he weighs to how much he’s eating, it’s all metric. So here are three things you can pass along to friends and family so they can do their own conversions and stop asking you, “so… how many pounds is that?”

  1. There are 454 grams in one pound.
  2. There are 30 mL or cc in one ounce.
  3. There are 2.54 cm in one inch.

There you go! That’s all you need to know to make it more familiar. Incidentally, since over 95% of the world uses the metric system, it’s not a bad thing to know anyway…
