Gavin was 8 lbs 6 oz at birth and is 13 lbs at one month!!! My friend has a 7 month old who looks very healthy and hes 15.5 pounds!!!!
Is he destined to be a huge baby??? Maybe he will level off. I am not really concerned, but I find it funny the drastic difference between my two kiddos.
How much do your babes weigh at 1 month?
We are probably very close to the same size at 3 weeks, but we started out at 10lbs!
Karen happily married mother of 3 great children (19, 6, 5), in my last semester for my Masters in Nutrition and started a six-month internship.
My little guy is about 14lbs. and just turned a month old 2 days ago but like xixstar my little guy started out at 10lbs.
My son had drastic weight gain like that starting out too. He kept it up till about 9 months, and then leveled off, and now (at 16.5 months) he's almost a skinny little kid.
Olive was 8lbs 5 oz at birth and 3 weeks later is now 13 lbs, chalk it up to the good milk and genes...I expect her to plain off too though.
DD is such a peanut, she weighs 9 pounds .6 ounces at 4 weeks. I bow to you Mama's that pushed out 10 pounders DD was 7 pounds 2.6 ounces and let me tell you, I FELT EVERY LAST OUNCE!
Then, last month, there was Nathan, at 7 lbs, 8 oz. If I had not been at home, lunged over the side of the bathtub and pushing hard in a semi-squat, he'd have had shoulder dystocia, because for me, that's a BIG baby!!! (As it was, he didn't turn and his shoulder was momentarily hung up before I shifted slightly to allow the MW to maneuver him out of there!) And that is not even factoring in his 14" head!!
He was 9 lbs, 12 oz at 5 weeks.
