Just a quick question. I'm ordering a keepsake box and want to put baby's weight on it. Getting 2 different weights when I convert to pounds and ounces.

Trying to convert 2995 grams

Anyone know?

Thanks in advance xx

So its 6.6lbs which is 6lb 9.6oz I think

6.6lbs doesn't mean 6lb 6oz you see - it means 6lb and 6/10 of a lb. 6/10 of a lb is 6/10 × 16oz (as 16oz in 1lb) = 9.6oz
So 6.6lb = 6lb 9.6oz
