The average newborn weighs seven pounds, five ounces at birth but there have been several cases of babies being born weighing close to 20 pounds.
The thought of delivering a baby that weighs eight or nine pounds will send any expectant mother into a panic, let alone one that weighs double that.
One Mexican baby weighed in a 7 Lbs., 11 oz. when he was born just 10 months ago, but rapidly grew to weigh as much as a nine-year-old child.
His name is Luis Manuel and he lives in Mexico with his family. His mother Isabel said: “After only one month we noticed that clothes did not fit him and we had to dress him in clothes for a one-year-old, and even a two-year-old.
“We saw our baby gain weight so fast. Sometimes, he could not sleep because he felt like he was suffocating due to his weight.”
