Date and Weight...

Now that Brooklyn Paine has arrived, let's see which of you correctly guessed her birth date and weight. For those wondering how Erin's labor went, the new mama calls it a "dream birth." She went into labor on Friday night and met little Brooklyn at 5:42am on Saturday.

When she gave birth to Carson, Erin's labor was very quick and painful, and she was unable to have an epidural. This time, things went much smoother, and she got her epidural.

Brooklyn was born on August 6th. Three readers correctly guessed her birth date, although only one (Amanda) included a name with the submission.

Born just over three weeks early, Brooklyn weighed in at 6lbs, 6oz. Although many readers came close, Lucy was the only one who guessed the exact weight.

  4. I'm so happy the Bates show depicts other alternatives for birthing than just the home births that the duggars push. Every woman should have options and decide for herself without pressure.

  5. Congratulations! Can anyone tell me what she measured?
