Logan is tiny. He's only 9 lbs, 13.5 oz at 7w5d. His birth weight was 7 lbs 4 oz and his lowest weight was 6 lbs 11 oz.

I have no idea how much my dd weighs....probably around 25lbs at 17 months (and still my baby). I only take her to the ped if she's sick....stopped doing well baby visits.

We don't have our next ped visit until June, but I tried to figure it out using my regular bathroom scale and I think he is about 10lbs at 3wks (he was 9.3 at birth)

Alden is 13 lbs 5 oz at 7 weeks! Just weighed today. The little chunkster is in medium diaper covers and hs outgrown the 3 month clothes he has. Some of the 6 month stuff is too short for a diapered kid.

Last week he was 8p12o at 5 weeks from a birthweight of 6p6o. He looks so big to me, like a whole different baby. Most of his weight is in height at 22 inches. The mw's coming this weekend so I'll get updated then.

Sophia weighed 11#4oz last week! That is so crazy! She is really growing. She just might be out of her 0-3 months clothes in the next few weeks. That is so amazing because with the other girls they weren't out growing their stuff until closer to 4 months. Ellysia never got beyond a stage 2 diaper! We're almost there already.

Reading all your babies weights, makes me feel so discouraged.
I suffer with low milk supply & have to supplement (with donated breast milk, thank goodness) Abby's lowest weight (that we know of, I refused a discharge weight) was 5lbs7oz. As of monday she was 6lbs 11 oz. She will be 5 weeks on thursday. I guess I just get slow growing babies.

I had a slow grower too with my last baby (dd now 7). She was 8.9 at birth and only made it to 10 something at 6 weeks. It was just her pattern and had nothing to do with my milk (which was bountiful). Hang in there Mama - sounds like you are doing your best, which is all you can do. Sounds like your babe is growing!

I'm not sure, probably around 11.5-12 lbs. He has an appt on the 31st. At my 6 week pp visit he was 11 lbs and that was 2 weeks ago.

Chloe was 7lbs 3oz at birth and weighed 10lb 1oz at 4 weeks (last Thursday)... I'm guessing she's close to 11lbs now... my babies always get really big really fast and then around 18 months not gain hardly anything for a long while.

So long as your babies are wetting/pooping lots diapers each day there isn't really any need to worry.

My chunker was born at 10 lbs 15 oz, was discharged at 3 days old at 9 lbs 15 oz. At her first ped visit at 10 days old, she was back up to 10 lbs 13 oz.

She fits just fine into 0-3 mos clothes. They did have to use size 1 sposies even in the hospital, though!

I tried to measure Logan last night and I think he is 23.5 - 24 inches (at 8 weeks,) which I think means he is really tall for his age and really skinny. I'm worried about him not gaining, especially while still waiting for the final word on this enzyme test - but maybe this is just his growth pattern, I was a frightfully skinny kid and am still pretty thin. DH was also a thin kid and thickened up as he got older.

I think that Jonas weighs around 11 lbs. Which means he has gained about 2, maybe 2 1/2 lbs. since birth.

He is really filling out and is already outgrowing his newborn sleepers and such at 2 1/2 weeks. I am sure in another week or two he'll be at 15 lbs. Maybe not, as that would get tiring to carry (!), but he's a pretty solid baby.

Austin was born at 9lbs 15 oz. When we got discharged he was 9lbs 13oz.

At 5 days old he was back up to his birth weight.

Yesterday at his appt, he's 10lbs 14oz at 3 weeks old, still 22 inches. Hasn't grown any in length.

I started packing away all the 0-3 month clothes yesterday and today I'm putting away the 0-3 month cloth diaper pulll up covers. He didn't wear them very long.

He never fit into the newborn diapers at the hospital. Went straight to size 1 (8-14lbs).

anyone know what I can do with the pull up covers I have? I prolly have 6 or so of them. I hate to throw them away, as this is my last babe.

Ethan had his 2 month old well baby check and he is 12lbs 3oz and almost 24" long! He's my first exclusively breastfed baby and my biggest (my other kids were always in the 5-10th percentile, so to have a baby in the 50-60% is huge).
