India's heaviest baby was born weighing up to 13 pounds
Core tip: according to the daily mail, a 13-pound baby boy was born in Rajasthan, India. He is the heaviest newborn in India and is called a "miracle baby" by doctors.
A 13-pound baby boy was born in the Indian state of Rajasthan, the heaviest newborn in the country, the Daily Mail reported.
The weight of a newborn in India is generally 6.6 pounds (about 6 Jin), but the size of the baby boy is too big to give birth normally. The hospital adopts the cesarean section to ensure the safety of the mother and child. Anamika Aggarwal, a midwife, said she had never delivered such a huge baby and that his weight may be related to his 220-pound diabetic mother.
The baby boy was born with mild respiratory problems and has now returned to normal. Although the baby has no congenital abnormality, to ensure the safety of the mother and child, they still need to be observed in the hospital for a week before they can go home.
