How Big Is Your LO?

Anyone know the current weight and length of your little guy? How about size?

I just had to unpack our 3-6 month clothes yesterday! He's mostly grown a whole bunch in length. However, I'm not sure where Laszlo's weight and length are exactly - I'll find out at his 8 week visit on January 5th.

At 2 weeks he was 11lb 5oz and still 23" we go back Jan 2nd and I'm certain he's heavier.....I'd bet he'll be 12+ lbs.....chunk!

Sunniva is approximately 9 and a half lbs. at 3 weeks. She hasn't grown in length at all since birth though, just getting fatter & her head is getting bigger! She is wearing some newborn size clothes & some 0-3 month clothes.

Our lil chunk weighed in clothed Friday 7.5 weeks at 12.5 Lbs and 23". He was 7lb 11 oz 21" at birth, same as his sister... at the 1-month stage he was a full pound heavier than she was at the same age. I don't think there's any chance he will be slim and delicate like her!

I am guessing ~13lbs. Nothing NB fits him, the long sleeves go about to his elbows and pants go to his midshins.

Emerson was 11 lbs even at his circumcision appt on Friday - he was 4 weeks old.
He is still weaing 0-3 month pants and some 3 month sleepers, but I've started moving up to 3-6 month onesies - my kids have long torsos! My son Eli was 17 lbs by 3 months, so I'm used to moving up sizes way early

Landon is at about 9 1/2 pounds now. He was 7lbs 9 oz at birth and dropped down to 6 lbs 15 oz before he started to gain again. He will be 7 weeks on Thur. and is out of his newborn sleepers but his newborn clothes still it ok for now but I am sure it wont be long before those are too small either. He has grown about an inch too.

Carter is about 12-13 lbs. Not sure on his length though. He is starting to get too long for his 0-3 month clothes so we'll be breakin out the 3-6 months soon. His appointment is on Jan 3rd and he will get a check up and shots. :eek:

My DS1 was always 95-99th percentile in weight as a baby right up until he started moving around 8-9 months by 10 months he was walking and now at 2 years he's 90th percentile in height and 55th in weight so he's a skinny toddler! We are always having to roll and cinch his pants! Now delicate he is now LOL

I'm guessing Gianni is around 8.5-9 lbs, he is still in NB clothes and diapers 0-3 months and some nb clothes are still too big for him. He is growing though and getting heavier,he is such a good eater. Last night he nursed from midnight to 5am! Must be going through a growth spurt.

Those of you who have "chunks" that are gaining weight like crazy and are in 95th %, don't worry that they will be chunky forever! My DS was enormous and in the 97th% for the first year of his life. By 3 months old he was over 17 lbs and wearing 9-12 month clothes. Now he is the skinniest 2.5 year old I know! He is still big - only a couple inches shorter than his 4 year old sister and only 3 lbs lighter than her, but they don't look chubby and rolly forever! They really stretch out and the weight gain tapers off. I just mention it because I know even though we are proud they are gaining so well, deep down we often worry that they will be chunky forever!
