Owen was 8lbs 9oz at birth, then he dropped to 7-15 at a week(my thoughts on this are he wasn't ready to be out due to my c/s, he slept that first week and rarely ate, but he had grown 1/2 an inch). At 6 weeks he was 10lb 11oz, and he'd grown 1 3/4 inches since he'd been born. So he was 22 1/4.

He's getting chubby cheeks and little fat rolls, so darn cute.

Yay for gaining! sorry about all the spit-up though.

My little girl hasn't been weighed since she was a week old, so I don't know, and her one month appointment isn't for another two weeks. But my son has an appt today and I'm very curious how much she weighs, so I think I'm going to ask if they can weigh her, too, at his appointment. It definitely looks like she's gained - she's got a "big" round belly now! She was 8'10" at birth, down to 8'1 at a day old, and back up to 8'11 at a week old, so I'm guessing maybe 10-11 lbs.

ETA: I thought 11 lbs was on the high side. LOL But 10 lbs was close. She is 9 lbs 12 oz at 3 & 1/2 weeks old. We'll find out her weight again in two weeks.

Sadie was 7 lbs. 8 oz. at birth, and at her one month check up 10 lbs. 9 oz. At 6 weeks I'm guessing around 11 lbs. or just over. She was 20 inches at birth and 22 1/2 at one month, so she's definitely a growing girl!

I have no idea what my daughter weighs at 4 weeks - I don't own a scale or do WBV's. She was 9lbs 7oz, 23 " at birth and is almost ready to go into 6m clothing. She's growing well, that's all I know!

E was 7lbs even at birth and 11 lbs even at 6 weeks. She spits up a lot too. She's definitely taller and is out growing her clothes. It's happening too fast...

Lyra was born 7/9 and at 4 weeks was 8/8

I don't know how much she lost- the hospital didn't weigh her before discharge.

DD3 was 6 lbs, 10.2 oz at birth.

Thursday at six weeks, two days, she weighed 9 lbs, 6 oz. She is doing extremely well with breastfeeding and I'm very happy, too!

Nate will be 4 weeks old tomorrow. Honestly, I don't know how much he weighs...
He was 6lbs9oz at birth.
At discharge (3 days old) he was 6lbs1oz.
At his weight check (10 days old) he was 6lbs4oz.
His next appointment isn't until December 29th (8 weeks old).

I did weigh him a few days ago using the bathroom scale and it says he weighs 7.2 lbs, but that's probably not very accurate.

We just happened to have a dr. visit today & Baby is exactly 6 weeks today. He weighed in at 14lbs 4oz.

I brought him in to the dr. to have his bizarre belly button THING looked at. He has this ball of flesh left over since his cord fell off, just hanging out of his belly button. It's weird.

everett has this too - proud flesh/granuloma - he's 2mths tomorrow so he'll be seeing my doc now too. my midwife said it's not that unusual, that it will need to get tied off. i hate that it's there so hope to get it sorted soon

omg, really? I'd never heard of of such a thing before. The dr. didn't give it a name either. Thanks, now I have something to research! Does Everett's ooze yellow goo & stain all your newborn clothes? Did it happen to start out looking like a worm & now look like a ball?

I'm sorry for the hijack!

didn't mean to hijack either but i hadn't seen anything like it either

not oozing but yes was like a worm but now more ball like (2 balls actually) but it is chafing so there are odd drops of blood.

my midwife says she sees them a few times a year, and they won't go away on their own but there are no nerve endings in there and can either get oozy or bloody (sounds like we each have one of those versions!). she said there is nothing you can do to prevent them, just extra tissue basically.

I don't have a weight on her since 2 weeks - she was 9 lbs 6.5 oz then. She's 6 weeks now.
But, I am amazed that milk from my body alone can sustain and grow a small human. It's truly awesome!

Kawa, she's big!!! She'll be asking for the car keys any minute
My little guy seems just SOOO little next to all these big babies. He's just 7.7lbs at 4 weeks -- smaller at a month old than most of our babies were at birth! I really can't wait for him to plump up.

Wow -- all of your babies seem to be growing very quickly. According to kellymom.com http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns...ight-gain.html average weight gain for 0-4 months is 5-8.5 oz per week. So at 4 weeks a babe will have gained on average between 1lb4oz and 2lbs2oz.

15oz8.5oz
210oz1lb1oz

51lb9oz2lbs10.5oz
61lb14oz3lbs3oz
72lbs3oz3lbs11.5oz
82lbs8oz4lbs4oz

I was getting worried that Nate was not gaining fast enough, but he's well within "normal" according to kellymom. Still, I'm very jealous of all these 9, 10, and 11lb babies!!

Wow, you mamas with 12, 13, 14 pounders at 6 weeks... you're getting a workout! I wish DD had some of that kind of pudge on her, it's SO cute!!!

DD was 8lbs even at birth.
At her 1 month check she was 10lbs 3oz.

I'm guessing she's close to 11lbs now at 6 weeks. Growing well, but no rolls.
