How much did your baby weigh when they came HOME from the NICU/hospital?

wow she came home at 3lbs!!! My little girl came home after 3 months of being in NICU and she wieghted 5lbs. When she was born she weighed 2lbs. I think its amazing the amount of care the nurses give to all of the little kids that small. I don't know what it would be like without my little Angel.

I had premature twins weighing 1lb 12oz and 2lbs 3oz at birth. They were born at 27 weeks. Once my son who was 2lbs 3oz reached 5lbs he could go home...it took about 2.5 months. My other son had other complications and came home weighing 5lbs 2oz after being in the NICU for 4.5 months.

My son was born at 29 weeks and was 2lb 7oz at birth he came home at 6 and a half weeks and he was 3lb 12oz. He is now a very active 3 year old! My little girl was born 5 weeks early so not so bad and she was 5lb 12oz at birth she had a few problems keeping warm so she stayed in scbu for a while but was home at 3 days old and was then 6lb. She is now 19 months.
