Am I really going to hear a huge difference between an actual infant stethoscope and a pediatric size one? Because I already have a pedi one and was wondering if I needed to spend the extra $$ to get an actual infant one.

If the pedi one is not appropriate:

There aren't always infant ones hanging in the rooms, so it's good to have your own, so I was just wondering.

If you already have a pedi one, unless you're going into NICU where they don't supply scopes for every baby (lots of them do that), buying a separate infant scope isn't worth the $$$. I have an infant littman, but it was a GIFT. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bought it, especially if I already had a pedi one.
