At birth (and what was the gestation), 6mths and 12mths.

I know you can't compare babies but just curious to see how much weight prem babies put on and if it is at a similar rate to term babies.

My DD weighed 2lb 1oz at birth.
Was born at 30 +6 but small for dates/IUGR.
She's now 11 wks and weighs 4lb 7oz.

DS, 36 weeks 7lb 7oz, EBF. Both his sisters were term and large. He fed badly initially and lost 10% of his body weight in the first three days, and took a month to regain his birth weight. But by 4 months he was on the fiftieth percentile uncorrected. EBF but he's my third and the first where I've not had oversupply issues, he does feed much more than the girls did.

PinkyNail was born at 25+4 weeks weighing 1lb 8.

At six months actual (14 weeks corrected) she weighed 9lbs 4. She enjoys hovering between the 0.4th and 2nd percentile for her adjusted age.

My DD was born at 26+5 and weighed 1lb 10oz, she is now 14 weeks (5 days corrected) and is 4lb 15oz. She has spent most of her time in the NNU nil by mouth and not taking as much through the drips as she should due to lots of problems though.
