Just curious how big everyone's babies are now :) Travis is 5 weeks old and a little over 8 pounds... yes, he is still tiny. He is the size of my oldest when he was born and still smaller than my middle was! He has another doctor's appointment about his horrible reflux/incessant spitting up on the 3rd so we will get a more accurate weight then :) how big are your babies!

DD was 9.9 at birth and is 11.4 at 4 weeks. 


Super crunchy Mama to DS1, DS2, DD and wanting a bunch more!  We homeschool, bed share, homebirth and baby wear. We're attached, we only cloth diaper and we don't vax. There's a lot more to us than that, but it won't all fit.

Lilah was 7lb 5oz at birth and approximately 11lb 14oz a day or two shy of 8 weeks (measured her on my bathroom scale, so not super accurate).  She's also gone from 20 inches at birth to 23 inches at 8 weeks.  :)  That's my little chunk!!

Ds was 9lb 7oz at birth and 12lb 14oz at his one month appointment.  He also grew 2 inches in that time.  He's almost six weeks now and I'm sure he's well over 13 lbs.  I think I know why I've been losing weight so fast!

Ah, yes!  Still, sounds like a very nice weight gain!  I'm sure by the time he's a few months old he'll be a chunker :D

Dylan was 6 lbs 15 oz at birth. At his 8 week appt., he was up to 12 lbs 2 oz. He started a wee bit on the small side (he was a 37 week baby), but is evidently making up for lost time!

Malachi was 7 lbs. at birth, 7 lbs. 15 oz. at 2 weeks, 9 lbs. at 4 weeks, and now 10 lbs, 2 oz at 6 weeks :) That is more than 1/2 lb. per week since birth! He nurses constantly, so I shouldn't be surprised, but he's already in 3-6 month clothes at 6 weeks!

Elise was 6 lbs 8 oz at birth, 6 lbs when we left the hospital (I had a lot of IV fluids in labour, I think it was all water weight).

 

She was 9 lbs at 6 weeks and 3 days.  


All that gain thanks to the mamas who have donated their milk to feed her.  She has eaten only donor milk, her whole life so far!  :) 


SPBC Finally a Papa! Elise Ember Soleil - 10/3/10 - 4:09 AM - 6 lbs 8 oz My daughter eats donor milk! Human milk for human babies!

We went to the midwife yesterday. Niamh was 3 weeks, 4 days and weighed 9 lbs, 14 oz. She weighed 7, 8 at birth, so this is a big gain, almost 2 oz a day. So different from Ds, who has always gained slowly. I chalk it up to the fact that this one actually sleeps, plus some pumping has revealed that my milk is pure cream. Hehe. Is it possible that an autumn baby would get fattier milk than a summer baby, since there is more of an imperative to fatten her up for the cold season?

Well done Mama! I have read somewhere that in summer you produce more foremilk as it is more thirst quenching and has more water content than the fattier stuff. So maybe you do produce more fattier stuff in winter? Unsure on that one but it wouldnt surprise me.

That's an interesting theory. DD1 was an October baby and gained 2 oz a day (she got HUGE) and we were living in a climate with very mild winters (i.e. as warm as the summers where we currently live). DD2 is gaining really well, but it doesn't seem to be as crazy and we're in a climate where she needs all the fat she can get... but who knows, maybe I'll go to her 2 month appointment and find out that she's surpassed her sister's record. Although I DID seem to have a lot more foremilk with DD1 (based on her poops) and had to block nurse a lot more... so maybe there is something to warmer weather = more foremilk.

I guess it's not a terribly huge surprise (no pun intended) that Cadence was 12 lbs 9 oz at her one month check-up (4 weeks, 3 days).  Lol.  She wasn't even "on" the percentile chart. faint.gif

 

She's 6 weeks today, and I'm betting at least 13 and a half, but who knows.  She's in 6 month clothes, and still cute as a button, even if I never got to experience that sweet teeny tiny newborn stage.  :)


Part hippie-chick, part type-A career woman, all mama. Enjoying life as a wife to my partner of 11 years, and a mama to our smarty-pants toddler, Cadence.
