Re: How did first child's birth weight compare to your other children?

Mine have all been very different sizes. 8lbs5oz, 7lbs4oz, 10lbs14oz, 5lbs13oz (preemie), & 9lbs even. I used newborn cloth on all except my first. Even my near 11lb-er fit into them, granted it was only for 2 weeks or so...

This may not count because my first born & second born were born mere seconds apart . But, baby A was 6lbs 1 oz & baby B was 5lbs 8oz

I believe my older DDs (step DDs) were both barely 7 pounders.

Ours were not within 8 oz of our first ... one was 12 oz less ... and the rest were bigger than our first by over 8 oz (one of ours was almost 2 pounds bigger ... very big baby).

My first 3 were triplets at 24 weeks 0 days. Total their combined weight was about 3 lbs. My son was born at 38 weeks 0 days and he weighed 8 lbs 1 oz.
