Re: how much should a 2 month preemie weight

My daughter was born 6 weeks early and weighed 4 lbs 7 oz at birth. At her 2 month check up she weighed 7 lbs 12 oz. I don't think there is an exact weight that a preemie should weigh, as long as the baby is gaining and thriving. How early was your daughter? How much does she weigh now?

Re: how much should a 2 month preemie weight

dont let them worry you, sometimes people are just mean. i had my son at 39 1/2 weeks and he weighed 8 lbs 4 oz. but i have heard stories (within the lasy year) of babies being born at 14 or 17 lbs (you can look them up thru google) so i would say that unless your baby looks overweight and YOU are concerned, then i would say your baby is happy and healthy.
