Can I see your 8.5-10 pound newborns?


Hi ladies! I hope to be here next month with my lovely new, big baby! She is predicted to be about 9lbs at birth, maybe a bit over. She was 6lbs already at a growth scan on Monday.

I've never seen a baby on the larger side of average...I'd love to see what a big gorgeous chubby newborn looks like, so I can get an idea of what to expect .

All previous babies in our family have been 5-7lbs, so just wee things!

Also, did newborn clothing still fit ok for a while? My son (7lbs 4oz) was in newborn for weeks and weeks.

Thanks so much

My LO was just under 8 1/2lbs.

I'll post 3 pictures - first he was 8lb 4oz, 2nd he was 8lb 15oz, and third he was 10lb 3oz.

Looking at these, jeeze he's gotten soo big since then.

Aw Omar was 8lbs 52 cms, he was long & skinny at birth. He wore newborn for few days only & he fit in 0-3 months as he was long for the newborn. He was in 3-6 at 2 months as he went up to 12 lbs.

Here is a pic at the hospital

So much cuteness! Thanks you guys.

Omar was the same length as Thomas, who was 7lbs 4oz and didn't look long? I thought that was average length for a newborn. Thomas was in newborn for about 10-12 weeks.

Aww I am so glad I started this thread.

52 cm at birth is 75th percentile? His growth was so fast, he was 60 cms at 2 months, 67 cm at 4 months, 76 cm at 7-8 months, & 81 cm at 12 months. He used to outgrew his clothes overnight. He went up to the 95th for weight & height at 2 months & he followed the same line until he was 12-14 months.
