A doctor that is looking after the baby that was born earlier this week weighing 17lb has stated that the baby has health issues.

The baby is currently in the special care nursery.

Her mother, Tatiana Khalina, 42, said she wasn’t surprised at her daughter’s birth weight because the first of 11 children weighed more than 11 pounds at birth, and the others “beat the records set by their brothers and sisters.”

I wonder if this mom is diabetic? Diabetic babies are known to be much larger than regular babies and can sometimes have issues with lung growth in utero.
