Most newborns born between the 37th and 40th week of pregnancy typically weigh between 5 and 8 pounds.
When a baby is born weighing more than 10 pounds, they are generally considered too large for their age.
However, these statistics do not apply to all newborns worldwide, and there are always exceptions like little Leo, who was born with a significantly higher weight than average.
A mother welcomes a healthy newborn who weighs 13 pounds and wears 6-month-old baby clothes.
Although the expected date was July 4th,
Leo arrived a bit earlier and just in time to celebrate the national holiday. This little one weighed 13 pounds and 2 ounces, which surprised everyone at the hospital.
Leo’s mother gave birth to her child via cesarean section at Williamson Medical Center in Franklin, and everyone who treated him was delighted.
Despite his unusually large size, little Leo is in very good health, and his sugar levels are normal.
“He eats all day. It’s definitely challenging to keep up with him.” There have been several cases of women giving birth to oversized babies, including one in 1879.
A mother, Anna Swan, who incredibly measured 7 feet 11 inches, had a little boy who weighed 22 pounds, but he passed away 11 hours after birth.
Furthermore, in 1955, a woman in Italy gave birth to a perfectly healthy boy who weighed 22 pounds, a Guinness World Record that still stands today.
These stories remind us that each newborn is unique, and diversity is a wonderful part of life.”
