I bet she will soon go through a massive growth spurt soon just like Alfie has.

He was 5lb 1oz when he was born, and went down to 4lb 9oz before we went back into hospital with jaundice. He is now 5 weeks 4 days and was 6lb 14oz last monday. I reckon he will be about 7 1/2lb when he is weighed tomorrow.

I can't believe how much he can drink now, he does need encouragement sometimes, but he is growing everyday and can even wear proper clothes now! Have you found it hard to find clothes to fit her?

Laura,
she will catch up in no time at all. My 12 yo was 4lbs2oz and she is top of her class! She soon caught up with her peers.
My son is now 10yo, and he was 11 weeks prem - weighed 2lbs 11oz - he has no health problems and plays football for the local town. He is a little dyslexic, but i think that is down to his prematurity.

Yeah she was, she was 6 weeks early so almost the same gestation as Georgia but she was only 2lb 15oz so mega tiny , about half the sz of Georgia xx

Forgot to say, she went down to 2lb 10oz just after she was born and then she's steadily put weight on ever since xx

yer i think ill feel better once shes on the lines in her health record so i no shes a healthy weight.

i think thats where georgia missed out about she lost 11oz and then started puttin on weight slowly. but shes been puttin on more past couple of weeks so hope that stays the same.
