Dd was 6lb 5oz - so not a contender.

So far:

Biggest 11lb
Smallest 3lb 8oz

tigerschick Sun 05-Aug-07 15:14:17

Oh, and, I second that [OUCH!]

Tutter Sun 05-Aug-07 15:14:56

someone in the village had twins at 24 weeks - both were <1lb

but they aren't mners so doesn't count

Tutter Sun 05-Aug-07 15:15:16

(neighbour, not twins, i mean )

MrsWeasley Sun 05-Aug-07 15:17:44

DS 11lb&1oz

Mercy Sun 05-Aug-07 15:20:21

Sparklygothcat and nutcracker - were your tiny babies premature (I assume the 3lbers were!) or just very small?

dd was 3 days early and weighed 5lb 9oz

PrettyCandles Sun 05-Aug-07 15:22:21

Aksherly, his was the easiest birth of the three, and - get this - no stitches

Beaten by a Weasley!

WanderingTrelawney Sun 05-Aug-07 15:24:58

Blimey pc do you have a rubber fanjo?!

lullamay Sun 05-Aug-07 15:31:58

DS 11 lbs7oz not a natural birth.

tigerschick Sun 05-Aug-07 15:43:34

So, now it is:

Biggest - 11lb 7oz!
Smallest - 3lb 8oz!

TheDuchessOfNorksBride Sun 05-Aug-07 15:44:10

Mozhe's no. 6 must be in the running for smallest - can't remember what it was though (I'd ask her but I think she's still windsurfing, paragliding and waterskiing on the backs of untethered sharks in St Barts)

All my DCs were 8lb-something so no prizes for me.

BHANNAE Sun 05-Aug-07 16:51:11

I had a 12lb 8oz boy in 2005 near 4 weeks early.
Also a 9lb girl in 2000.
Big babies on both sides of the family-dh bro was 13lbs!
Am due in September this year but will be having db in August-wish me luck lol

tigerschick Sun 05-Aug-07 16:55:08


12lb 8oz??!!

Please tell me that wasn't natural delivery

MrsWeasley Sun 05-Aug-07 17:13:27

prettycandles: i didnt have any stitches either but then again when I arrived at the hospital all I kept saying was "I dont want stitches" everytime anyone asked how I was

Now bhannae's ds makes ours sound tiny
