Giant Baby Boy Born

Pub Date: 14-02-14 10:26 Source: Globaltime.cn

A woman surnamed Li gave birth to a 7.12-kilogram baby boy at the People's Hospital in Shanwei, Guangdong Province on Wednesday. Doctors have dubbed the boy "Xiaopang," or Little Chubby, as he already looks several months old.

Xiaopang isn't the heaviest addition to the world. Several days earlier, a 43-year-old mother surnamed Wei had a 7.35-kilogram boy in Jieshou, Anhui Province.

Considering the baby's size doctors advised Wei to have a cesarean operation. After nearly two hours of surgery, Wei gave birth to the baby boy.

Wei's child might be the heaviest newborn baby born in China.

According to the Guinness World Records, the world's heaviest newborn baby weighing 10.2 kilograms was born in 1955 in Italy.

Zhang Yanjun, head of the Gynecology and Obstetrics Department at Jieshou People's Hospital, said that a newborns weighing over 4 kilograms are considered big, while newborns weighing more than 5 kilograms are rare.
