  • Honestly can't remember for sure. She was 4.1 at birth and was 9.6 at 13 weeks, so...probably around 7.6?

  • 8lbs 6oz. he wasnt getting much when i was breastfeeding him. we had been supplementing a formula bottle since he was five weeks and he was eventually switched to formula at 10 weeks. he is 11lbs 5oz now (at almost 13 weeks), so the formula helped our situation alot becuase he wasnt gaining weight very well when he was nursing.

  • My son was 8.4lbs at birth. He was 12 lbs at 1 month, and 14lbs at 2 months. He was always off the charts for height too. He is 13 month now and is almost 30 lbs.

  • Lizziebreat, if you baby was at birthweight at 2 weeks, then he gained plenty - over 5 oz a week. If he lost 8-10% of his birthweight (which most first babies do), then he gained plenty. Not to mention growing 3 inches in 8 weeks, holy cow! He was packing everything into his length growth.

    Every new mom should read the article "Look at the BAby, not the Scale". Weights, not considering any other information, are USELESS in determining the health of a baby.
