This week in Shanwei, China, a mother gave birth to one big baby (pictured). How big? Try 7.12kg. And that’s not even the biggest baby born in the country this month.
Searchina reports (via Yahoo! News) that another mother — this one in a totally different city — also recently had a giant baby boy, who weighed 7.35kg.
Both giant babies were born via caesarean.
In the developed world, the average weight of a newborn carried to full term is 3.4kg. Any child that weighs more 4.5kg is a “big baby” (macrosomia). And most big babies turn out OK!
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest baby born to a healthy mother was in Italy in 1955 when Carmelina Fedele had a son weighing 10.2kg. And that’s a lot.
