DOCTORS ASTOUNDED AT BIRTH OF 16 lb BABY

Post  Panda on Wed 13 Jul - 10:01

Doctors Astounded As Baby Weighs In At 16lb






10:43am UK, Tuesday July 12, 2011
A woman in Texas has given birth to a record-breaking baby who weighed in at
more than 16lbs.











The baby boy - JaMichael - was born to Janet Johnson and Michael Brown in
hospital in Longview, Texas.
"We're just amazed," Ms Johnson told the Longview News-Journal.
"I can't believe he's that big.
"A lot of the baby clothes we bought for him will have to be returned.
They're already too small for him to wear."
The hospital also had trouble kitting out such a large baby.
He is the heaviest ever born there, and its nursery for newborns does not
have nappies big enough to fit him.
The little chap's size, according to local reports, is connected to
gestational diabetes which his mother developed during pregnancy.
The condition causes a pregnant woman to become resistant to her body's own
insulin and to pass higher than normal amount of sugar to her baby, who stores
the extra calories as fat.
JaMichael will be spending his first few days of life in the hospital's
neonatal intensive care unit to regulate his blood sugar.

THIS WAS TAKEN FROM SKY NEWS THERE IS A PICTURE OF THE BABY IN AN INCUBATOR IF ANYONE WANTS TO CHECK IT OUT.

Just looked at his pic. He's a right little porker!
But at least he's healthy.
His mums back will be breaking after a few weeks of lifting him!

I think his size was due to his mother developing diabetes whilst pregnant.
I bet he loses a lot of that weight over the next few weeks.

His Mother was taking Insulin, but the sugar was being taken in by the Baby which is why he grew so big. He is in an Incubator until the Doctors have reduced the sugar level.
