19 Pound Baby

Monday, November 2nd, 2009 by:

And you thought your delivery was intense. An Indonesian woman gave birth to a 19 pound baby boy (19.2 pounds to be exact). The baby was 62 centimetres long. (As a comparison my one-year-old, who is not small, is 75 centimeters.)

The good news is the baby was delivered via C-section.

The birth is the heaviest newborn on record in Indonesia but the heaviest in history was actually recorded in Canada. The heaviest baby ever born was in 1879 to Anna Bates. The baby weighed 23.12 pounds.
