Mum Explains How She Gave Birth To Baby Double The Normal Size

A mum has gone viral on TikTok after she shared how she managed to give birth to her baby boy who came weighing in a whopping 6.6 kg and was 60cm long.

Just to put things in perspective, according to the University of NSW, the average Australian baby weighs 3.3kg and is around 50cm tall.

Yikes.

In a video uploaded to TikTok - which has since been viewed 29 million times - user shans1588 revealed two doctors were required during her son's C-section birth due to his massive weight.

"Oh you want to play the biggest baby?" the brave mum said in the video. "I got you. At 38 weeks and one day, I had my second son via C-section with two doctors assisting.

"Because he came in at a whopping 14 pounds, point six ounces [6.6 kg]."

"That's right. I gave birth to a toddler, who then spent 11 days in the NICU here clearly, he was the biggest baby in there.

"The NICU didn't even have diapers for him or clothes, they had to go upstairs to pediatrics and get size three diapers and he came home in clothing, sized six to nine months."

The astounding story garnered thousands of comments from bewildered TikTok users, with many making jokes about the baby's gargantuan size.

One joked: "He came out a grown man."

Another quipped: "At that point he (is) able to pay bills."

The big bub is apparently doing just fine, enjoying normal things a kid his age does.

"Our 14 1b .6oz baby boy J is a healthy, stubborn and STRONG five-year-old who loves baseball, football and Monster Trucks," she confirmed.

According to Guinness World Records, the heaviest baby that was ever born on record was born in Aversa, Italy, in 1955 and weighed 22 pounds 8 ounces - that's over 10 freaking kilograms.

Funnily enough, the biggest baby to be born in Australia was in Victoria and named Willow. That baby weighed in at 6.6kg - the same as the TikTok baby.

Willow was also born naturally, which is honestly the way bigger achievement in this story.
