Weight of subsequent babies? Pintsize Due December 8 (girl); Japan 17 posts
23rd Nov '13

Just wanted some personal experiences. Were your second/subsequent babies bigger than your first or more around the same size? Barring things like preemies/health issues etc of course. My first was 7 pounds even, and I've always heard that under normal circumstances, there's not usually a large difference in weight.

DS1 41 weeks 1 day 8 lbs 6 oz
DS2 39 weeks 6 lbs 4 oz
DS3 39 weeks 7 lbs 13 oz

I heard babies usually get bigger, after the first one. Not mine lol

All around 40-ish weeks. No real rhyme or reason, my babies' weights were all over the place lol.

I haven't had my second yet, but I can say that my mom had 3 girls, all born at 38 weeks. First was 7lb 3 oz, second was 6 lb 7 oz, third was 6 lb 3 oz. Pretty easy to remember lol. My sister has two. Her first was born at 39 weeks, 8 lb 13 oz, and her second was born at 38 weeks 7 lbs even.

1st- 40w6d- 8lbs even
2nd- 36w- 6lbs 12oz
3rd- 38w1d- 7lbs 15.3oz

if I were to adjust for gestation and they had all been born at 40wks (approximating 1/2 weight gain per week) then yes it would have been correct that each was larger than the last.
