Hi everyone,

My doctor has told me that according to the charts he has that my son is the biggest baby born in Oct. 2008! Just wondering if he really is....He was 9lbs. 8oz at birth ( I know that's not the biggest lol) and he is now almost 29lbs and over 31 inches tall. He's about to turn 9 months old and is already half my height! (I'm only 5'2") So I was wondering how big your Oct. 2008 baby is?

My son was 6lbs 8oz when he was born he is now 19lbs and 28inches long he is 75th percentile for height and only 12th for weight, but genectics make a big difference in that factor so I wouldn't worry

KirstenThanks for the positive feedback for Jacob.






Ella sounds like she is doing really well and not letting things hold her back. I kind of feel that Jacob is in a rush to get through life and I wish that he would take a wee bit more time as he is my last baby and now he will be full on with the walking. I am heading to the doctors tomorrow to confirm the murmur is still audible and then we have to wait for another 2 months for an ECG and then we discuss an operation. I think that it will heading that way as there are signs that his heart and lungs are not working properly.






It is so hard to see the children go through this but they are so happy to keep going in general.






How does Ella cope with the colostomy bag? Be happy that she is taking her time, my first son was the same and it was a blessing to put him down and know he would be there when I turned around...he he. Keep up the good work Ella!!






Take care and please let me know how the operation goes

Hi again






Ella is coping really well with the bag. Its a shame its getting hot here so quickly as I dress her well so she cant get to it lol..  Your in Australia you said? Im in QLD. I have a son who is nearly 6, from memory he started crawling about 10mths so Ill give her a couple more weeks.. hehe.. But she shuffles VERY well cant put her down and turn my back she moves quick!  The Doctors said Ella has a heart murmur too (this was after her op) and I was concerned but I spoke to her surgeon (diff doc to the ones that said they could hear it) and he said it was completely fine that her murmur was a sign of a healthy heart as the blood was just rushing through slightly faster than normal.. so there's one less thing to worry about!!!! I hope all goes well with Jacob's ECG.. Certainly not at all pleasant seeing them in hospital.. I am not looking forward to taking Ella back there but it has to be done..









 Hi ya!



I'm in Caboolture, Qld -whereabouts are you?



Glad to hear that she is doing well with the bag. It is very hot isn't it. The last three days were over 30 and I was sooooo glad today was cooler!



Jacob started walking before crawling and then when we did crawl, he was too fast for anyone...he he.



 



(Was replying straight away and then my neighbour came over with her snap machine and got gossiping, now where was I??)



 



Well that is one thing less to think about. Jakes was 3mm out of 7mm at birth so will be interesting to see the growth rate. I think they will have to drug him this time as he is so active, defintately not the 5 weeks old now.



 



Good luck with the hospital, never nice taking them there but always one step closer to a "normal" life.

Okay I'm a Kiwi in Australia so have converted things
Jacob was born 3.51kgs (the nurse said it equals 7lbs 12oz), converted tonight as 7lbs 7oz and length was 52cms = 20.4inches
and he is now 9.07kgs (20lbs) and length is 72cms (28.3 inches).
Everyone states how big he is but compared to his brother he is short (like Mum).
He also has a hole in his heart so I'm not sure how this affects things.
He started walking today -yay!!






Hi Ave, Jacob sounds like he's doing really well. My little girl was diagnosed with Hirschsprungs Disease at 7 months. She currently has a colostomy bag and we're waiting on her pull through operation and stoma closer which should be in the next few weeks.. Shes growing so well since being diagnosed she is 9.360kg now and approx 74cm long.. :)  Still waiting for Ella to crawl let alone walk! She doesnt want to try mind you she just shuffles over to the lounge gets herself up and walks all round it lol..

Hello,

My baby was 3 pounds and 9 ounces, when he was born 7 weeks premature, on October 19, 2008. In the NICU for 2 months.

He is now 21 pounds at 10 months and you wouldn't be able to tell her was premature at all!

Wow, I guess I have a small baby... My son Jonathan was born 2 October 2008, he weighed 6 pounds 12 ounces and was 20 inches long. At his 9 month check-up he weighed 16 pounds even and was 26 inches tall. I guess he just takes after me, I'm only 4 feet 10 inches tall. I kinda feel bad now...

My son was 10lbs. & 21.25 inches at birth, at his 9 month checkup 2 weeks ago he weighed in at 25lbs and 32.25. He is full of rolls and chub!!! He just learned to crawl last night acutally so I am anticipating a leaner boy in the coming months...Dr. also said to cut him back to 20oz. of formula a day...little boy is not happy with that!!!

Wow. My daughter was 7 pounds 10 ounces and 18 inches at birth (Oct. 15) and at her 9 month check up she's 18 pounds 15 ozs and 27 inches. Now she's walking and it looks so funny cuz she's so short. I'm 5 3 and her dads about 5 5 maybe 5 6 so i'm predicting she's going to be on the short side.

Jayci was a big girl when she was born (October 16) as she was 8lbs 11ozs but she is growing at a nice pace and was 18lbs at her 9 month checkup and she is still wearing 9 month outfits and the 12 month clothes are a little big.

My son was 11lbs 4oz at birth and 22 inches long . . . he's now at his 9 month 21.4lbs and 31 1/4 inches tall. My husband is 7 foot tall though and I'm 5 10, so he'll probably continue to be on the larger side!!
