  • 19 lb baby born

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/worl...indonesia.html

    A woman in Indonesia has given birth to a 19-pound baby boy, the heaviest birth ever recorded in the country, according to Agence France-Presse.

    The unnamed baby measures in at 24.4 inches long, and was born by a caesarean procedure on Monday at a public hospital in North Sumatra province.

    "This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him out of his mum's womb. His legs were so big," Binsar Sitanggang, a gynecologist who took part in the operation, told Agence France-Presse.

    The baby boy initially was given oxygen to overcome breathing problems, but seems to be in a healthy condition, according to the gynecologist.

    "He's got a strong appetite, every minute, it's almost nonstop feeding," Sitanggang told Agence France-Presse.

    The enormity of the baby is most likely related to his mother, Ani, 41, having diabetes, Sitanggang told reporters. If a diabetic mother’s glucose levels are too high during pregnancy, the baby may grow too large because of high glucose intake.

    Ani had to be rushed to the hospital after complications with the pregnancy. The big baby boy is her fourth child, and the only one not delivered by traditional midwife.

    The Indonesian boy weighs in a bit short of the world record, currently held by a 23-pound baby set in 1879.

    The baby boy is sure to be a handful for his mother, with a baby’s cry that sounds more like a lion’s roar.

    “This baby boy is extraordinary; the way he’s crying is not like a usual baby. It’s really loud,” Sitanggang told Agence France-Presse.

            I can't imagine--I was uncomfortable enough with 10.5 pounds of baby (my twins--she was 5 lb 8 oz, he was 5 lb even), and this baby's almost twice as big (more like the size of mine at 1 year). Hope she recovers well and the baby has no ill effects resulting from the size/maternal diabetes (gestational or otherwise, I'm not clear).

                          He's hoping the bigger baby isn't going to eat him.
