A woman in Indonesia has given birth to the country’s biggest ever baby tipping the scales at a whopping 19.2lbs (8.7kgs).
She named him Muhammad Akbar Risuddin after the local district chief. ‘Akbar’ means ‘big’ in Indonesian.
This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him out of his mum’s womb. His legs were so big.
The baby is 62 centimetres (24.4 inches) long, was born by caesarean section Monday at a public hospital in North Sumatra province a gynaecologist.
The boy’s huge size was most likely the result of his 41-year-old mother having diabetes.When a diabetic mother’s glucose level is high during pregnancy, the baby can receive too much glucose and grow too large, gynaecologists say.
This baby boy is extraordinary, the way he’s crying is not like a usual baby. It’s really loud.
