How much does your baby weigh at 3 weeks old?

My Daughter was 6 lbs and 12 oz a couple of days ago. She should be more by now.

  • my daughter was 8lbs 7 oz when she was born, and then she lost like a lb and a half or so then it took her about a month and a half to get above her normal birth weight.

  • My son was 9 lbs 4.7 oz at birth, and 8 lbs even at 7 days old. He was pretty sick with jaundice, but by 3 weeks he was back up to about 9 lbs. He was a big boy =)

  • PS~All babies lose weight after they're born...its the period of time before a mothers milk comes in...it's natural but if it's excessive (more than 7 oz) you should talk to your pedi, if nothing else, to put your mind at rest

  • I don't have a weight for 3 weeks... but his birth weight was 6-15 and at 2 weeks he was still 6-15 (but he had dropped to 6-4 I think) and by 6 weeks he had gained a ton and was 9-14
