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?

my preemie twins were born 10 weeks early ds was 3.7 or dh was 3.5 they just turned 3 months on the 4th of july and they are both 11 lbs something wont go to dr until next month.. so I dont know whats normal...but as long as there gaining weight....
thank you for your input when i took her to her WIC appointment they tried to tell me she was over weight she is now 8lbs and is 11 weeks old how could se be overweight her corrected age would be almost two weeks old i have heard of babies being born at this 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.
