World's Biggest Babies Ever Born

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel » Fri Sep 20, 2013 1:30 pm

Giving birth to a baby heavier than nine pounds is extremely rare, but these babies sure tipped the scale.

Jasleen - Germany's Largest Baby
Image
A new baby girl has tipped the scales in Germany and may have entered herself into the record books.

Baby Jasleen is considered to have macrosomia, a definition for being born in the top tenth percentile in weight of all babies.

Typically, that's a baby more than 8 pounds, 13 ounces, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The clinic adds that fetal macrosomia makes a vaginal delivery difficult and could injury the baby during birth. These children are often delivered through cesarean procedures.

However, this baby was born naturally, according to her doctors.


In 2013, a baby weighing 6.1 kg (13.4 lbs) and measuring 57 cm (22 in) long was born naturally. Jasleen, a baby girl, was born at University Hospital in Leipzig, Germany on July 26, making her the country's largest ever.

Jasleen's mother was found to have an undiagnosed case of
gestational diabetes, a condition which normally occurs around
the 24th week of pregnancy and can lead to a larger-than-normal newborn.


Stephen Lyttle - Australia's Largest Baby


Stephen Lyttle, who tipped the scales at 7.399 kg (16 lbs 5 oz) when born at Kempsey Hospital on January 26, 1963, is Australia's heaviest. The average weight of
an Australian baby is 3.37 kg.

Today, he is 50 years old and stands a relatively regular 1.86
meters and weighs a proportionate 97 kg.

Maxine Marin - Gave Birth to the Biggest Baby Girl in Spain


A 40-year-old British woman has given birth to the biggest baby ever born naturally in Spain - a girl weighing 6.2 kg (13.6 lbs). Maxime Marin delivered the baby
at 4.43 am local time at the Hospital Marina Salud in the Mediterranean city of Denia, according to the hospital.

Larger babies are often delivered via Caesarean section, but Marin did not even need an epidural, a
painkiller delivered into the spine during childbirth.

Marin, who lives in Spain with her partner from Colombia, said she knew that the baby would be big, "but not that big."

George King - UK's Largest Baby

(50.45 KiB) Downloaded 217 times

The largest baby born in the United Kingdom was George King in 2013. The child weighed in at 15 pounds, 7 ounces, which is nearly twice the size of the average baby.
There was no indication that baby George would be this big; both of his parents were born at pretty regular sizes, and are not particularly big themselves.
Baby George's size caused significant difficulties for his mother, Jade. Mid-way through the delivery - after baby George's
head had already popped out - he became stuck. His relatively giant size for a newborn meant that he simply was struggling to get his shoulders out.

According to Jade, "that's when things got scary," as about twenty medical staff ended up in the room working on freeing the baby. He was eventually delivered
successfully and transferred to another hospital for specialist care.


JaMichael - Texas' Largest Baby

In 2011, Janet Johnson gave birth to a baby boy, who entered the world weighing 16 pounds, more than double the average weight of a newborn. Baby JaMichael was
the heaviest baby to be born at Good Shepherd Hospital in Longview, and reportedly the largest newborn in the Lone Star State.

Johnson and her fiance, Michael Brown, knew that a big baby was coming soon.

Two weeks before her caesarean delivery, Dr. John Kirk, Johnson's
obstetrician, said he expected the baby to weigh 12 or 13 pounds. However, JaMichael even surprised
the doctor.

Nadia Khalina - Siberia's Largest Baby Girl



Baby girl Nadia, who weighed 7.75 kg (17.1 lbs) after birth, is pictured above lying in a maternity ward in the Siberian city of Barnaul on September 26, 2007. One Siberian mother has done more than her fair share to
heal Russia's dire population decline. Tatyana Khalina shocked her husband by giving birth to Nadia, her 12th child.

Worlds Heaviest Baby Born by Indonesian Woman
Image
An Indonesian woman has given birth to the heaviest baby ever born in the country, a boy weighing in at an eye-watering 19lbs. We take a look at some of the other extreme sizes and shapes the human body can reach.

Heaviest baby ever

Sadly, the heaviest baby ever born, in January 1979 in Ohio, USA, died after just 11 hours. The boy weighed 23lb 12oz. His Canadian mother, Anna Bates, was herself was an unusual woman at 7ft 5in tall.

The heaviest surviving newborn seems to have been a 22lb 8oz boy born to one Carmelina Fedele in Aversa, Italy, in September 1955.
