Woa Mama - December 22

I've mentioned a couple times that my baby is in the 95th percentile for his size... but I'm wondering if any of you had babies in the 95th percentile what does this translate to as for the birth weights of your babies?

My son has always been around the 95th percentile for height, and the 90th for weight... he was 8 lbs. 14 oz. at birth, and I think, 20 or 21 inches long.

My son was 50th and he was 7lb 15oz, wheras my best friend's son was 11lbs and completely off the charts! I think 95th percentile is like a 9lb-er.

Yes, my daughter weighed 8lbs 10 1/2 oz, and was 21 inches long. 95th percentile pretty much until she was about 4. That just means that your child is above average in its size. Thats a good thing so I wouldn't worry.

hiya all it means is u will have a big baby but it can also be wrong my last baby was 9lb, 4 1/2 oz and he came at 38 + weeks i was in the 95th % then and im now having another big baby hes in the 95th % again so i wouldnt worrie if the hospital thought he was to big for u they would send u for scans every few weeks to check the growth rate but if u are worried about it just speack to ya doc he will help u understand .
