    I was just chatting to Paradysso on MSN and went onto a weight conversion site to check smiles babys weight, as i dont get kgs and i realised that the weight that i was told isla was when born wasnt right!

    When she was born i was told that she was 3.960kg and i didnt know what that was so i asked the MW to convert it to lb and oz for me which she did and i was told 8lb 12. I knew that in her little red book it always said 8lb 11 but hey i didnt mind as its actually so close.

    Well i just converted her weight and she was actually 8lb 7!!!!! WTF!!! :think:

    Can you all convert 3.960 kg or 3960g for me and tell me i'm not going mad!!! :wall:

    I get 8 lbs and 11 ounces or 8.7 lbs i.e 0 .7 of a lb is 11 ounces not 7 - hope this helps

    Noo it's 8.73 pounds, but remember there are 16 ounces in a pound.

    So if you take the .73 bit and multiply it by 16 you get 12 which is the ounces

    Therefore 8 pounds 12 ounces

    Yeah they got it right. It converts to 8.7lb, but thats not the same thing as 8 lbs 7oz. It's actually 8lb 12oz because there are 16 ounces to the pound, not 10.
