How much weight did your little ones gain weekly in the first few weeks? Tayla-Rose has put on a pound in 2 weeks, the doctor seemed very happy with her. Just wanted to know how much yours gained, and whats the norm? She was born at 3.8lbs x

Hiya, im glad she is doing so well Smile

I cant quite remember Aimee's exact weight gain but on average she put on between 8oz - 12oz per week so Tayla Rose is doing well Smile

Aimee was 2lb 15oz when she was born and she was 4lb 8oz when she left the hospital 3 weeks later xx

Connor has only just got back to he's birth weight, after 4 weeks. But i think it all depends on what else is going on with the baby! If the doctors are please, than it must be good! If it was too much too soon they would say and give Tayla-Rose something to loose it!

Annie was 3lb 2 oz and lost weight in the first 2 weeks, she is now (7 weeks on) 5lb 2 and has been steadily gaining just over an ounce a day.

Immediate weight gain is really good, so thats fab! Hope it makes her return home a little quicker for you. x

Aimee was 8 weeks old before she was in newborn and she went into 0-3 months when she was 12 weeks, she's now grew out of half of them and today she had on jeans that were 3-6 months, i am so stupidly proud of her Smile xx
