Big Babies!

Found 12th Jun 2008
Did anyone see that programme on tele last night about "Big Babies"? Two of my freinds both had their babies yesterday almost 10lb in weight. Thought the programme was a bit unfair showing the older toddlers who were born big eating all the time, tho when I saw the one year old baby girl eating a plate of chips and the mom saying "she can eat almost a bag full" I just thought how terrible is that?!

whats amazing is that 2 of your friends had babies at that weight on the same day, which just happened to be shopping a programme about big babies...... coincidence?

Apartantly when my little one was born there were a record number of children delivered that night, midwife said that there musnt have been anything on tele that night 9 months ago, I replied I can't remember, I did it during the adverts....... twice :lol:

Well get this then. Ive got 3 girls. My first one was born early weighing exactly 8lb and half an ounce. My second was born a week late and was exactly 8lb and half an ounce. My third was over 2 weeks late and also weighed exactly 8lb and half an ounce. What are the odds of that?

All 3 of my boys were born on their exact due date!

Shouldnt that be cry baby?!

90% of the women who gave birth to big babies were obese themselves.

he's gonna make some woman very happy :thumbsup:

My son was 10lb 1oz born 4 days late and naturally! Only gas and air and no stitches - ok I'm boasting now! Oh and my labour was only 1hour 40 mins!!!!!!

He was my second and my first was induced 2 weeks early and was just under 9lbs.

I was a big baby (9lbs) and my oh was 7.5lbs and a month early. Big babies run in families! A baby is also usually in proportion with the mother. If you have big hips then you are more likely to have a bigger baby. women with tiny frames often have smaller babies. It's called nature!

my son was 9lbs 14oz when he was born. he's now 19 and is like a stick insect so being born big doesn't mean you have to stay big.

My mum is a "big girl" and none of me or my 3 brothers weighed more than 8lbs. We are indeed very lucky to be alive, we could of got caught up in the beef curtains and suffocated:roll:

this posts resulted in combined coughing/laughing fit!

Quite often large babies are because the mother has had gestational diabetes which can affect up to 10% of births. Often the mother isn't particularly aware of anything wrong and it won't be discovered unless she's screened for it, but the raised blood sugar level in the mother diffuses through the placenta and causes an increase in the baby's growth in the womb. Hence the big babies!

When i had Lib, my chuff suffered badly....my then beef curtains are now beef throw overs!

Nowt to do with the women being 22 stone +

I was laughing my back off, sorry if I was the only 1, but obese people that are really lazy and eat loads of rubbish getting on TV for having big babies is a disgrace.

Our son was 8lb 14.5oz which we thought was big, then our daughter came along and she was 10lb 8oz!!!!
Nothing to do with being obese cos Mum is a tiny size 6/8 weighing 7stone2lb pre-pregnancy, it was Dad that caused the bigness for being 6ft6 tall!!

omg I can't believe you just said that!!! :lol:

Every woman is tested for this every time they are seen, by urine sample. If theres a increase in sugar levels than a blood test is needed.
I had the diabetes test twice during pregnancy, i did tell them i had ate a packet of giant choccie buttons just before the urine test!!
Then they told me Lib's was going to be 11 pounds!! My eyes watered!! We didnt buy any newborn clothes....but we had to when she was only 7lb 12 and on time....very strange how they get it so wrong.

Just thought the programme last night was a bit harsh showing the little 2 year old lad eating all the time. This is not always the reason that children are big, tho if they eat too much of the wrong thing then its not going to do there long term health much good. There is a good oppotunity when they are young to influence what they eat, and tho I know you cant force feed kids 5 fruit and veg a day, it helps if you try!:)
