Woman Gives Birth to 17-pound Baby

A Siberian woman gave birth to a massive 7.75 kg (17.1 lb) child. The baby (Nadia) was delivered by caesarean section in the local maternity hospital in the Altai region on September 17. The weight of Nadia is shocking for many. Take a look at the picture. According to World Health Organisation, the average weight for most healthy newborn babies is around 3.2 kg (7.06 lb).

"I ate everything, we don't have the money for special foods so I just ate potatoes, noodles and tomatoes," she told the reporter, adding that all her previous babies had weighed more than 5 kg. Link

The Guinness World Records lists a 10.2 kg baby boy born in Italy in 1955, and a 10.8 kg baby boy who was born in the United States in 1879 but died 11 hours later.
