Can you rattle off your child's birth weight and birth time?

Posted by   + Show Post

I was just in a conversation with some moms recently about birth weights and times they were born and they all had those things memorized. They could just rattle it off like it was nothing. I know estimations of these things. I know my first was born around noon and weighed a little less than 7 pounds. Six pound 13oz maybe. My second was born in the late morning sometime and weighed a little over 8 lbs. I was concerned with other things like when they were eating and oxygen levels (for the one with health problems) that things like time and weight didn't strike me as important info.


Do you know all this info by heart?


Also, how easy is it for you to say your kid's birthdays? The first one is easy. She had a bunch of doctor's appointments and surgeries, and insurance stuff to deal with so I was saying her birthdate on a near daily basis. With the second, she was healthy, and I didn't need to say her birthday all the time. I struggle with it! The year really trips me up. I have to count backwards. I'm not good with numbers!

Do you ever struggle with this?

25"? That is a very, very long skinny newborn.

Quoting kattcooper:

Farrah February 10th 7lbs 0oz, 10:05am, 25" long



Keagen May 22nd, 7lbs 14oz 9:50pm, 20" long



They were two of the best times of my life, they are burnt into my memory.

She definitely was. She was also classified as a premie too, just didn't look like one.

I can remember approximately what each child weighed (all under 7 lbs)- I remember the birth times.

Birthdays are memorized, those aren't a problem.
