Rayne was 8 lbs 1 oz at birth and 8 lbs 9 oz at 9 days old. She won't be weighed again until she is 1 month old.

Cohen was 2lbs 9oz at birth and at his last appointment on 9/2 he was 6lbs 6oz. His next appointment is September 28th. He usually gets weighed every 2 weeks but after he hit 6 lbs they said once per month

Betsy was 6 lbs 15 oz at birth -- dropped to 6 lbs 7 oz at discharge four days later. At 6 days she weighed 6 lbs 14.5 oz. Yesterday, at 1 week 5 days, she weighed in at 7 lbs 6 oz.

Melissa -- Cohen's doing so well and getting so big! Congrats mama!

Milan is trying to regain his birth weight of 7lb 14 oz. Our next weight appointment is on Thursday. I am sure he will go way past the goal as he gained almost double the minimum last time he was checked.

I reckon the size of a toddler.

He will be weighed for real when he eventually walks out of Mummy's uterus waving and saying hello to everyone. Reckoning then the size of me

Myles was 7lbs, 7 ounces at birth. Last Thursday he was 9 lbs, 7 ounces. I'm sure he's over 10 lbs now. He didn't get to eat for 10 days after surgery, so I'm pretty happy with his weight gain.

You should be able to get him weighed at the doc's office, even without an appt. It literally takes the nurses 1-2 minutes to walk you back and weigh you. Call and ask them.

Or, get a digital scale and weigh yourself and then weigh yourself holding him-it won't be as precise, but could give you peace of mind.

Kiddo #2 took 2 weeks to regain his birth weight before he started chunking up. Since I was a little nervous about how much he was eating with BFing, they told me to bring him in anytime so we went at 1 week and 2 weeks old and then once he was back to birth weight I felt okay.

Don't worry about overfeeding! Unless you're doing something crazy like giving him pop he'll be just fine.

Samantha weighed 8lb 1oz at birth and then dropped to 7lb 10oz before we left the hospital. Then since we were discharged early at the hospital we went to the doctor's and her weight went down to 7lb 6oz then had to go back 3 days after that and she went back up to 7lbs 10oz. Then we went back today since she is now 10 days old and her weight is back to her birth weight exactly 8lbs 1oz so now we don't have to go back until her one month check up!

Aurora was born at 7 pounds 1 oz and when we were discharged from the hospital she was still at 7.1. Today at her appt. (1 week old exactly) she weighed 7 lbs 7 oz. She'll get another weight check next week and then they won't need to see her until 2 months old.

This is what I do.

Roan was 7# 9 oz at birth -- but was up to 7# 14 oz at our 2nd dr checkup (after we got out of the hospital the 2nd time).

His 1 month appt is Thursday, but our home scale says he is 10.9 lbs.
