Any time I've asked me if baby is gonna be big oh n I were both big babies n they run on both sides of the families I get told that he's a "average sized baby" my question Is what does the "average"baby weigh?is it anywhere from 6-7.5 pounds r more?just wondering really!
Just like adults, babies come in all shapes and sizes! The average British birth weight is 3.3kg (7lb 5oz), and most newborns weigh between 2.5kg (5lb 8oz) and 4.5kg (9lb 14oz).
How much your baby weighs is determined by genetics and your health and nutrition through pregnancy. But it’s not how much your baby weighs at birth that’s most important – it’s the rate at which they gain weight afterwards.
this is a very interesting documentary about the weight of ur baby and how a higher birth weight is linked to health and a lower birth weight is linked to future problems like diabetes and heart disease. they argue that its not what we do in our life that causes these problems but how we are grown in the womb and what nutrients mum eats and what weight we are born at. very interesting!
Thanks ladies must watch that doc later on iPod now lol I'd say around 7.5 too maybe I was 8pds10oz so I was a chubby baby oh was around d same lol! Had a scan test n got a glimpse of our baby's chubby lol cheeks
