Post subject: Mums with premmies, low birth weights..Weight gain?
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

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
