Weight Gain

So I was wondering how much weight babies have gained so far.

At 4w,6d, Cidney weighed 9lb, 12oz :eek: That's 2oz's shy of 3 lbs gained since birth. He's such a porker! lol

Elijah started at 8lbs 3oz, went down to 7lbs 9ozs, and at 4 weeks was 9lbs 9ozs. I feel like I CONSTANTLY worry about his weight. I guess because I cant see what going in. *sigh*

We haven't seen her ped since 1 week old but I'm guessing she is at least 12-12.5lbs. She started out just shy of 10 pounds and my other two kiddos gained 1lb a month at this age.

Out 2mon appt isn't until 4/12 so we've got some time but it will be interesting to see how much she has grown.

Sheldon was 5 lbs, 11 ozs. at birth and left the hospital at 5 lbs., 7 ozs. We weighed him at the ped. a week after we left the hospital and he was 6 lbs., 10 ozs. We don't go back to the doctor until April 11th, so we don't have another official weigh in until then. We tried to weigh him ourselves and home and we think he's over 9 lbs. now. He's certainly grown out of all his newborn clothes and diapers. Smile

Saphira is a big little girl! She was born 8 14, and at 15 days she was 9 15. I'm pretty sure she's around the 13 pound mark right now. The scale at home isn't so accurate when I do it with her. I was saying 11 and a half pounds for way longer than she was, and she's in her 6 week growth spurt right now. My FIL came over yesterday and thought she was 18 pounds. Well he clearly has no feel for weight, cause she's not 18 pounds! But a bunch of the clothes she was wearing comfortably last week are now really tight, and the 3-6 that was nice and baggy are fitting rather well now!

Bennett was born at 6lbs 9oz. At 6 weeks he was 0.5oz away from 10lbs. I'm guessing he is 12lbs, but i'll know tomorrow when he gets his shots. Sad

Bubba weights 12lb 7oz which is 4 oz shy of gaining 4 lbs in the 6 weeks since he was born, but if you count that he was down to 8lb 2oz at discharge instead of the birth weight of 8lb 11oz, he has gained over 4 lbs. most of it was in the first 2 weeks, i've stopped trying to wake him up at night and feed him (dd had jaundice so it freaked me out when he was less than a week old and would sleep for 5 hrs, dd never did that except when she was sick, so i would wake him up whenever i woke up!) and i think that has slowed down the gain a little.

Here is Calvin's -

Birth: 6lb 8oz
Discharge: 6lb 3oz
1 Week: 6lb 5oz
3 Weeks + 3 Days: 8lb 5oz

So in 2 weeks and 3 days, he gained EXACTLY 2 pounds!!! :eek: I was so happy to find that out because we've had such a major struggle with BFing. Biggrin

Here's Cailyn's little weight chart:

Birth: 7 lbs 3 oz
3 days(lowest weight): 6 lbs 12 oz
10 days: 7 lbs 10 oz
2 weeks(15 days): 7 lbs 15 oz
3 weeks(20 days): 8 lbs 8.5 oz

She is now exactly 4 weeks old, and I'd guess her to be somewhere around the 9.5 lb range. She no longer fits into newborn diapers, and I have a feeling we'll be dressing her in 0-3 and 3 month clothes pretty soon. Her newborn clothes are starting to get a little snug.

I'm not sure where we are at for weight. She was 7 lb 10oz at birth, 8 lb 7 oz at 2 weeks, and she hasn't been weighed since. I weighed her here on our scale with me holding her and she seems to be about 9.5 right now. Her weight gain has seemed to taper off some. We don't go back to the doctor until early May.

And I'm quite sure he's 13ish lbs now....

Sawyer was 8lbs 6oz at birth and at 7 weeks is 10lbs 7oz. He's been gaining 4 to 8 ozs a week which is right where he should be - but I still think he looks skinny.

Eloise was

7 lbs 6 oz @ birth
6 lbs 15 oz @ lowest weight
10 lb. 1 oz @ one month appointment

She is almost a pound bigger than DS was at his one month! Her cheeks are just so chubby and all the rolls on her legs, I LOVE IT!! Chunky babies are the best Smile

She went from 20 to 21 inches in a month, too.

i dont think my kids like to stretch/ get mesured at the hospital. DD was 19.25 at the hospital and was 22 inches the next week when i took her in to get checked for jaundice. DS was 20 at birth and 23.5 when we took him in at 6 weeks. just don't like to get measured that first time, because i KNOW the didnt grow that much that fast!

This is Hazel almost exactly.

birth: 8lbs 1oz
1.5 days: 7lbs 8oz
2 weeks: 8lbs 1oz
3 weeks: 8lbs 8oz
5 weeks: 9lbs 2oz

My other two kids are peanuts and have been barely on the weight chart their whole lives. I think she's gonna follow in their footsteps.
