Kim Kardashian's Baby North West's LOW Birth Weight Revealed!

| Filed under: Baby BlabberKanye WestKim KardashianHealth


Let us just say right off the bat…

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West totally have a healthy baby!

Having said that, when North West was born - she weighed a below average amount for a newborn baby.

North West, delightfully nicknamed Nori, was born about five weeks early and weighed in at 4 pounds, 15 ounces.

Here's what a source said:

"She's tiny and perfect. She looks just like Kim — with her dark hair and some of her features. Kim is breastfeeding, and the baby is healthy."

That's gotta be a HUGE relief for Kim and Kanye! And for us, too!

Another source added:

"[When the baby came early] Kim was scared, and the doctors had to assure her that even though the baby was early, she was ready."

Although on average babies weigh 6-8 pounds at their time of birth, that doesn't mean babies with low birth weight aren't healthy.

Here's what the University of Maryland Medical Center says:

"Some babies are just small and happen to weigh less than 5.5 pounds at birth, just like some adults are smaller than others. Though this is considered low birth weight, in these cases, it is not abnormal or a cause for concern."

It seems as though the doctors were correct with their original assessment that Nori was healthy - Kim and Kanye left the hospital with North West and returned home late last week.

We cannot wait to see their little bundle of love, and we're so grateful that Kim has produced a healthy and happy baby.

Enjoy parenthood, you two!

    blah blah blah KIm. blah blah blah KIm. There are babies born everyday and are under 2 lbs.

    I agree…induced baby. My 1st child came early(no inducement) by a month. He weighed exactly 6lbs. Now is a 6'4" lady charmer. Birth weight means little in the long run.

    she probably stopped eating.. remember when she started to whine about her weight gain? She whined about her pregnancy all the pregnancy from beginning to end… i bet the baby low weight was due to her selfishness..

    Re: Gladiatora – I agree she may have stopped eating, however the baby would take the nutrition it needed from Kim regardless of if she was eating or not. I was severely sick during my 3rd pregnancy and could hardly even keep water down, however my doctors assured me my baby was taking what she needed from my body. So if in fact Kim wasn't eating, that could have caused the complications that resulted in the early delivery. And since babies pack on the pounds the last few weeks of pregnancy, she probably would have been of average birth weight if she went full term.

    Nori sounds much better thank god for that

    Does anyone else find it strange that the baby was so small, regardless of the fact that Kim ballooned while pregnant? Even though the baby was born prematurely?

    Don't believe it. She had to have an excuse to stay that long in the hospital for her liposuction, tummy tuck and breast lift. No way her baby was that small as big as she was.

    Nori is a kind of seaweed.

    Re: chanel – It's possible it was, as supposedly a baby in untero can gain a pound a week in the last two months. If she was five weeks early, add 5 lbs to 4 lbs 15 oz, and you might have had a 9 lb. 15. oz baby, or basically a 10 pounder.

    Re: Kitty katt – You can't spell, you can't write, you spew hatred, you're obviously jealous, and as your name implies, catty. I don't care much for the Kardashians, and kanye is so disgusting and arrogant I won't even capitalize his name. However, Kim is a beautiful woman, and you know it. That's why she's on here, and on every magazine cover, and you're not.

    I heard she had pre-eclampsia so a low birth weight baby is to be expected as is the baby coming early.
