momuveight2B Nathaniel was born on 8/20 at nine pounds. Yesterday he was 14 pounds three ounces. He is 24 inches long now. He lost a pound in October when he needed surgery.

We think his weight is good.

Marlet We weighed a week or so ago (before the 3 month mark...just don't know when ) and she was 12 lbs. 6 ounces.

Alohamelly Elliott is 3 months, 3 weeks old and nearly 15lbs now. He's growing so fast! He's long too ... I can't believe it.

Cinder Travis is 3 1/2months old and 11lbs 7ounces, he was 6lbs 14oz at birth. He's on the smallish side I guess, but my dd was 12lbs 6ounces at 6 months and my first ds was 17lbs at 4 months, so I only have the two extremes to compare it to, he's huge compared to his sister and tiny compared to his brother.

SaraGriffin Kaia is 15 wks and 2 days old and weighs 11 pounds. She was 5lbs 10oz when she was born though (39 weeks and 4 days), so she is probably smaller then the 'average' baby - most people estimate that she is younger then she is.

Now he's almost 9 weeks and is just a bit over 16 lbs.

quetinha Noah was 8 weeks on Friday- we had his appontment today.

At birth he weighed 7 lbs 6 oz
He is now up to 10 lbs 7 oz

I thought that seemed pretty good, but reading through the posts, he seems a bit "skinnier" than most of yours. Now I have to combat worrying that my breastmilk isn't good enough

Yep - I finally figured out the foremilk imbalance & block feeding after several weeks of 1+ pound gains.

Yuba_River Updating on my little one since we had our two month visit today:

Birth: 7,5
6 weeks: 12 (huge gain!)
9 weeks: almost 13 --so his gain has slowed a little. Probably good, he's getting heavy to sling around already!

I think the initial big gain is related to my oversupply of milk, which is starting to slow down a little. Anyone else have this experience?

babz OK I have the super chunk of the century:

7#6oz. at birth.

16#12oz. at 9 weeks old (pedi office weight last week - he was born at 38 wks) & 24 inches long.

Most of his 3-6 month clothes don't fit anymore and we're using premium PFs. His fluffy butt makes him look even bigger!

Totally, EBF!

Sabo So I posted before about Aili's quick weight gain at 10 days. I thought it was related to the glucose IV in the NICU. Well, I was wrong.

Birth: 7 lb 1 oz
10 days: 8 lb 4 oz
4 weeks: 10 lb 3 oz

Yes, she's a little chunker. I can't believe she's gained 3 lbs in a month!!

PiePie DD was born at 7 lbs even. By the next day, she was down to 6 lbs., 12 oz. By 1 w, she had surpassed her birth weight. At 4 w she was 8 lbs., 11 oz. When last weighed, at 6 w, 6 d, she was 10 lbs., 11 oz. (with clothes on...But remember, cloth dipes weigh something).
10-06-2007 04:00 AM
mamamoo dang...this is the first baby I have had in a long time that hasn't gained super fast(good for my back which is spasming all the time).

She was born 8/11 and weighed 8,8 she was 7 weeks last sat and weighed 10,6. She is still pretty little. But geting lots of cute rolls. LOL

Alohamelly He's almost 8 weeks old now and I have no idea how much he weighs. He started off slow - didn't gain any weight the first 3 weeks and then he took off. I had him weighed last time at 5 weeks old and he was 10lbs, 2 oz (8.15 at birth) and now I would guess he's about 12-13lbs. He's almost outgrown size 1 diapers! His 2 month WBC is next week so I'll find out how much he weighs then.

twilight girl Birth: 4100 grams (9 lbs)

4 weeks: 4500 g. (9lbs. 14 oz)

6 weeks: 4940 g. (10lbs. 14 oz)

So far he is way outgaining his big sister. She was 8lbs 7 oz at birth, and took a whole month just to get back there. She was probably 3 or 4 months before she hit 10 lbs!
10-02-2007 03:16 PM
mama2walden&luna 8 weeks and 12 pounds here!
10-01-2007 02:21 PM
ashleep Oh, and when dd was a newborn, we weighed her at the grocery store in the produce scale. We got really strange looks.
10-01-2007 02:20 PM
ashleep 7,10 at birth and up to 9, 10 at 2 wks.

If he's still averaging 1lb a week then he's about 12, 10 at 5 weeks. He needs to slow down! lol My back is going to be killing me by 3 mo!
10-01-2007 01:58 PM
edenluna at birth: 7 lbs 8 oz

now (2 months): 10 lbs 3 oz
10-01-2007 01:28 PM
crunchymommy26 7,10 at birth and up to 9.12 a few days after she turned 1 month. ♥ my little pudge!
09-30-2007 10:38 PM
Yuba_River Born at 7, 5. Was 12 pounds at 6 1/2 weeks! He is getting chubby cheeks and round arms and legs.
09-30-2007 07:34 PM
Marlet Birth: 6 lbs 13 oz.

The most recent weight I have is from a doctor's appointment which we had because I switched pediatricians, however the place where I go to La Leche League meetings also has a baby scale.

Twinklefae Hey, four weeks and 11lbs 6.5 oz here. And feeling very large.
