Newborns weigh an average of about 3.5 kilograms (7.7 lb). If one reaches a weight of more than 4.5 kilos (10 lb), it is considered to be quite heavy. Sometimes expecting mothers hear from others that the more weight we gain during pregnancy, the heavier their children will be. This is not entirely true.
Whether the little one will be larger or smaller depends on genetics, birth weight and the mother’s weight before she became pregnant. The pregnant mother’s diet is also important.
It’s worth it to take of having a proper diet and avoiding products that contain so-called empty calories. This is defined as foods having a very low nutritional value. You would look for valuable vitamins, minerals and fiber in these in vain.
Some time ago, the world heard the news about a giant baby from Australia. It was born to a woman weighing 250 kg (550 lb). The newborn surprised doctors with his size. When put on the scales, he weighed 18.1 kg (39 lb)! If you want a closer look at this case, have a look HERE.
In Germany, a “toddler” like this also recently came into the world. While he did not beat the world record, his appearance is just as impressive. Go to the next page and learn more.
