    I took Fynn today to get weighed... He is 9 weeks old today and weighs 13lb 11ozs :shock: .. is this big for his age??? He weighed 7lb 3ozs when born.

    There was a baby girl there too...she was 12 weeks old today and weighed 10lb!

    What is the weight of your babies?

    At 8 weeks Isaac weighed 13lb 2oz and at 10 weeks he weighed 14lb 1oz and I never thought of him as 'big', just healthy and eating well, it's more a matter of a steady pattern, any sudden extrememe weight gain or loss may indicate a problem, but babies tend to eat what they need so I certainly wouldn't worry, he's doing just great by the sounds of it :hug:

    Hi hun


    Fynn is just inside the 75th percentile after starting from just below the 50th at birth. My chunky munky was 50th at birth and is 98th percentile now. He went steadily up and into the 75th until 10 weeks or so then shoots up to the 98th at 12 weeks so watch out for a bit of a growth spurt :)

    Tia was classified a big baby... but healthy... :)

    At 8 weeks she weighted 13lbs 4oz and she was a little girl and a week younger than your little boy... At 12 weeks she was 14lbs 9oz :)

    He sounds like he is a very healthy normal weight for his age and sex... :)

    Phew Thanx gals.. I must admit I ws a little concerned..especially after seeing that little girl who was older than Fynn and a lot lighter!
    A lesson learnt for me I think.....Not to Compare!

    At 8 weeks Nathan was 13lb 13oz but he was 9lb 5oz when he was born. He weight gain started slowing down when he was around 6 months and at 10 months he now weighs 24lb, the same weight as his 2 year old sister.

    cant remember at that age but willow probaby weighs about 20lb now as her weight slowed as she was getting more active but saying about weight difference Willows bud Anabell is 2 weeks younger and the size difference between is big but willow is very tall she is on the 98th percential (sp) for her height so she is very tall.

    Breastfed babies tend to pile on weight at the beginning and then level off about 3-4 months. My DD was on 75th centile and is now on 25th - weighing about 14lbs at 20 weeks (was 8lb 3.5oz when born).
