wy is 3 weeks and I'd guess he's just over 10lbs, he was 9#11oz at 2wks. our home scale says he's 10lb but it isn't very accurate. he's in 3-6mos and 6-9mos clothes

eta: he had a head start. birth wt was 9lb 8oz, but his discharge wt was 8lb 11oz

Reid is almost 5 weeks.

At 4 weeks he was 9lbs 10oz. Birth weight was 7lbs.

I am thinking 10lbs now.

Ky was 8lbs 2oz when he was born, 8lbs even when we left the next day, and 9lbs 2oz at his two week check up I know he must be well over 10lbs now at 6 weeks (well as of Midnight he will be 6 weeks ), but he is so long he is still in his 0-3 month, but I am guessing not for much longer!

8lbs 8 oz at birth.

13 lbs. 7 oz. at 5 weeks.

He is in 3-6 month clothes and although the pants and shirts still fit, his torso is already getting too long for most of the sleepers to snap at the crotch and his legs to stretch straight. He has gained 1 lb a week for 5 weeks!

He will be 6 weeks tomorrow.

DD was 6.14 at birth and will be 4 weeks old on Tuesday. I'd say she's closing in on 9lbs Still wearing newborn size clothes as some of the 0-3 month stuff is still too big!

Emma is 5 weeks and 9 lbs. So she's gained a pound, which is perfect!

now I am wondering if her weight gain is too slow, everyone else's baby seems to be bigger. Wow. I'm breastfeeding on demand and she's getting lotsa milk.

Mine were both around 12 lbs at 3 months. Not sure now, they are two weeks older.
They were 3.10 and 4.7 at birth, so they've really gained- the are now 'normal' on the charts without taking their prematurity into account

Nessa was 7# 1oz at birth, she's now 10# 6oz at 7 weeks. She's outgrown most of her newborn stuff, but the 0-3 stuff is still a bit big.

Using the "weigh mama holding babe/weigh mama alone" technique Torin is 14 lbs exactly at 5 weeks 2 days.

He was 9lbs 8oz at birth and he wears size 2 huggies (we sposie at night) and 3-6 month outfits. Actually, a few of the smaller 3-6 items don't really fit anymore, and some of the smaller 6-9mo stuff do. I've had to weed through his clothing already!

ETA-
Talula- I've treated all my kiddos the same in terms of nursing on demand and they've all been about the same size at birth (dd1-9lbs6oz, dd2-9lbs, ds-9lbs8oz). But while dd1 and ds took their head start and ran with it, packing on the baby pounds dd2 did the opposite and dropped right off the weight charts until finally pulling herself up to the 10% around a year. Same breastmilk, same parents, totally different outcome! So I wouldn't worry that other kiddos are gaining faster. I think it's Dr Gordon who has the "watch the baby, not the scale" quote? As long as your little one is eating well, producing diapers, and acting happy then it's all good. And you'll get more use out of those adorable 0-3 outfits!

Sullivan will be 6 weeks old tomorrow. He was 8 lbs 10 oz at birth. At 2 weeks he was 9 lbs 7 oz. At one month he was 11 lbs 8 oz. And now I think he's between 12 and 12.5 lbs (using my digital scale and the weigh me and him and then just me method). I'm hoping my midwife weighs him tomorrow at my 6 week PP check. He's a big one, that's for sure!!

Isaac is 7 weeks and 3 days and weighs about 13 1/2 pounds. Just a guess by holding him on the scale with me.

SO big So fast!

DD is probably 12 1/4 lbs ish. I've been weighing her + me & then me on my ILs scale on Sundays, but she and I were camped out in a strange grocery store trying to get home while she screamed everytime I put her in her car seat at that time yesterday, so . . .

Almost double her birth weight by 10 weeks on Wednesday!

I don't have big or chunky babies, though. She's my chunkiest and compared to some of her chunkier cousins, almost all EBF, she's a sylph! But healthy & happy (except in the car at night )

Here as mama to W (2/04), R (5/06), D (7/09), and J (12/9/12!), co-parenting with my DH

I WOH part-time, am a doula & childbirth educator, home/unschool, and hope we are nearing the center of chaos

Santiago is 7 wks today and really close to 13 lbs, I think. He's been gaining well, as he was born at 7lb3oz... Heavy enough to start making my back hurt sleeping in my ring sling right now!

Yikes - I weighed Santiago last night after posting and he is even bigger than I thought - 13lb9oz! Holy cow. I need to get the next box of clothes out. We're still in 0-3 months, but I think that's just because he pretty much lives in wool longies and t-shirts.

Just got home from the ped, and Jules weighed in at 11lbs 9 oz. He is 9 weeks old. His birth weight was 6lbs 6 oz. I am so glad he is gaining since he is a quick nurser, like taking sips ocasionally. Guess it is enough.

Nope, Peter is right around the same as Emma and she is just a few days older. "Normal" is at least .5oz/day but even then there is a decent amount of wiggle room (i.e. baby had reflux issues or latching issues that took some time to resolve so that they could gain well).

I breastfeed on demand too and my first was just small until she hit age two. I seem to make skim milk (but at least I am making milk!).
