# How much is my dd if the nurse told me she was 9.6 kg? (In pounds)

I took my 9 month old (tomorrow) dd to the ER yesterday because her dr couldn't fit her into the office until Wednesday and I didn't want to wait because she had 102 temp since the day before yesterday, cried when I picked her up like she was in pain, and screamed and she had already went one day like that so didn't want her to go no longer like that. Well yesterday she couldn't hold up her head straight so that is why I also didn't want to wait. I was almost positive she had an ear infection. Took her in and sure enough she had an ear infection well anyway they weighed her and said she was 9.6 kg how big is that in pounds?

• ok so how many ounces make a pound?

Comment by mommy5409 (original poster) at 3:12 PM on May. 1, 2012

• multiply by 2.2 : 9.6
x2.2
-------
21.12 so basically 21 lbs. To convert pounds to kilo's divide by 2.2 instead. Most medication doses are determined in however many mls per kg so you have to convert the weight to kg's to determine right amount of medicine that's why doc offices use kilograms. Useful to know the conversion if you don't know the correct dose of medicine. As long as you know the weight you can look any medicine up on a PDR or nurse's drug book and figure it out. Ex Weight 21 pounds = 9.6kg . If The doseage is 2.5ml/kg, then 2.5ml divided by 9.6kg, Dose would be 3.8ml. Sorry TMI just handy to know.
