Ever wonder how heavy is the heaviest newborn ever? Well, well, well! Prepare yourself and meet Big baby from Indonesia (he doesn’t have a name yet so I called him Big baby instead).
Big baby is the one on the left (obviously he’s big!) and the right is the average size of a newborn. See the difference!!!!
He is a 19.2-pound and 24.4 inches long. Recorded as the heaviest baby in the country. The mother went through a caesarean section last Monday Sept. 21 at a public hospital in the province of North Sumatra. One of the doctors who performed the surgery commented that they had difficulties taking the baby out because his legs are long and big.
The healthy baby boy has a very strong appetite, he feeds on almost every minute. A very extraordinary case from the usual that we see. Even when he cries, he sound like a 2 year old baby.
The doctors explained Big Baby’s condition. They said that his mother Ani has diabetes which caused the baby to grow big. When a diabetic mother’s glucose level is high during pregnancy, the baby can receive too much glucose and grow too large, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Indonesia’s previous heaviest baby, weighing in at 15.2 pounds, was born in 2007 on the outskirts of the capital Jakarta, according to the Indonesian Museum of Records website.
