View Full Version : Growth from birth
Just interested in the growth rate of people's babies. How big where they born and how heavy where they at their milestones (3mt, 6th, 12th etc. Does a baby that is born big stay big or do they even out in the end and is it the same for smaller babies?
no idea hun, my bubs has had problems with his growth since birth but thought ide bump it since you have had no replies. ;)
i never got DS regularly weighed
but at birth he was 4.155kgs
now at 16 months hes 9.7kgs
My 4.1 kg DD1 weighs about 9 kg at 12 months - and she eats more than her 4yo sister. So she dropped on the percentile charts for weight, but height and head circ have been steady.
I have no idea weights... no bubs... lol
but i thought id bump it because there wasnt many replies...:hugs:

As you can see DD2 was born bigger then DD1 but is alot smaller then her big sis now :yes:.
so I think just because they are born big or small doesn't mean they'll remain that way :).
My bub was 3.2kg at birth but then averaged 250g per week until he was six months old (and that was on breastmilk alone for 5 months!). He slowed down a bit after that and now at almost 13 months weighs 11kg.
I'm only a small person which is probably why he wasn't a very big bub but as soon as he was out his daddy's genes started to kick in and now he's quite big.
All bubs are different. Some are born small and stay small. Some are big and stay big. But all turn out just the way they were meant to :)
My bubs was 6lb 11oz or 3.05kg at birth and struggled to gain weight in the early months. We struggled with breastfeeding.
At three months he was 5.1kg.
At four months he was 5.6 kg.
At about I began supplementing with formula and he took off after that!
At 6 months he was 8.1kg.
He's now 8 months and I think I need to get him weighed again - hopefully he's steadied up a little!
My experience has been that the little ones do catch up over time.
My DD was 3.2kg at birh
5.9 at 12 weeks
7.9 at 6mths
and 10.5 at 9mths
My DD was 4.42kg at birth, about 3.8kg on release from hospital four days later. Didn't regain birth weight until 5-6 wks.
birth 4.42kg, l 54, hc 36
8m 6.86kg, hc 45, l 68 approx
Now nearly 9m - i think she weighs about 7-7.2kg approx.
So just because they are born big doesn't mean they stay that way. My DD has dropped from the top of the chart for weight to the lower end. Height has dropped from above avg to avg, and head has remained above avg.
DD1 ... birth - W 3.84kg (8lb 7oz) L 53cm HC 36.5cm

DD1 and DS are now relatively tall for their ages but slightly underweight! You can't tell how they will grow from their birthweights!
Well DS weight over 8 times his birth weight ROFL
Birth weight (at 30 weeks gestation) 845g
Current weight at age 1 7.7kg! he is only little though
Birth weight (@33 weeks gestation): 1152 grams
Now,(3 weeks off 1 year): 9kgs,probably a lil bit more than that.
