Giant Baby

In Russia, a mother has given birth to a child weighing 7.75kg (17.5lbs), which is more than twice the average weight for a human child. Although its not the heaviest baby ever born, its still a huge child.

Among the heaviest babies ever recorded are a 10.2kg (22.5lb) boy born in Italy in 1955, and a 10.8kg (23.8lb) boy born in the US in 1879 but who died 11 hours later. The Russian baby weighs roughly the same as 9 bags of sugar!

It wasn’t a natural birth, otherwise that would have really hurt the mother!
