I know babies all grow at different rates but... WHOA!! I hopped on the scale with ds yesterday and couldn't believe my eyes. I *thought* he'd been getting big, but had no idea he was up to 15 or 16 pounds already! He's only 8wo! He was only 11 or 11.5lbs when the mw weighed him 3 weeks ago. Should I consider this a growth spurt?
:LOL

maybe different scales too...

At 5.5 weeks, my midwife weighed dd and she was 8-15...but the next day at the doctor's office she was 9-6. Hmmm?

Pretty amazing though isn't it, how fast they grow?

Wow, that's some growth spurt!

Early on, my ds was gaining about a pound a week. He seems to have slowed down some, though, in the past couple weeks.

It's so fun to watch them grow, isn't it?

mostly WAHM, sometimes WOHM to my : two boys.

You might check at your midwife's to see if her scale says the same thing, but it sounds if liam's mom has seen a pound a week your scale could be very close. That is exciting! I have been wondering about Ryan also, he gets weighed on the 21st again. I am just waiting to see what it says. I might do what you did and jump on ours with him to see what we see though, good idea

Tell me about it!! I was shocked when we went in to his 2 week appt and he'd gained 12 oz. He was at birthweight at 6 days so he had gained the next 12 oz in 6 days!! He's a nursing champ!

Even if the scales are that different I don't think it's that far off. His SM diaper covers have been getting awefully snug, and I tried on his MD size ones and they fit perfect. All of them start at 14-16lbs. I can't believe I have a 2 month old in Mediums already....

Next thing I know he'll be asking for the car keys. :LOL

I started CDing ds at 7 weeks and ordered mediums for him. They all fit just fine!

He's a chunkster, that's for sure.
