A new mom in China got a bit of a surprise earlier this week when her baby boy arrived weighing double that of the average newborn.
The 41-year-old mother gave birth by caesarean section on July 2, 2012 in Wuhu, Anhui Province of China to a big baby, 52 cm in height and 13.73 lbs in weight.
This has definitely been the year for the big baby! In May Jack Burt was born two weeks late weighing 13 lbs 5.5 ozs. His birth was followed by 12lb 6 oz Bethenny Jane Turner, who was born during a water birth. Just a couple of days after Suzie Tevendale was born naturally weighing 12lbs and 12 oz, UK mom Elaine Martin gave birth to her baby girl Niamh weighing a whooping 14lbs 4oz at birth, making her possibly the heaviest newborn in UK.
But all of these babies were trumped by a little girl in China who tipped the scales at 15.5lbs in February.
Could you imagine? It would be like carrying triplets!
