Mum Gives Birth To Huge Baby Who's Already Wearing Clothes For Two To Three Year Olds At 11 Months
| Last updated
After an emergency C-section, a mum gave birth to a baby weighing a whopping 11lbs, the average size of a three-month-old.
Sarah Dine gave birth to Montague, nicknamed 'Monty', who is now 11 months old and wears clothes for two to three year olds.
The astonished 35-year-old from Broadstone, Dorset, said: "He was so big when he was born, he looked ridiculous.
"When the doctors took him out, they were all laughing and I didn't know why at first.
"He was in the 99.9th centile for height and 99.6th for weight."
Sarah purchased lots of baby clothes before Monty was born, but now none of them fit.
She said: "Even the little cap they gave him at the hospital was too small.
"My sister had to run and buy me some nappies because none of the ones we had fit him either."
And it appears the reason for Monty's hefty weight and height will remain a mystery, as none of Sarah's doctors can provide a reason why.
She continued: "After he was born, we were both tested for gestational diabetes loads of times, but it was never positive.
"I'm 5 foot 9, and my husband Elliott, 41, is six foot, so we were never going to have a small baby.
"Neither of us were particularly big when we born, I think I just carry big babies."
Sarah felt she had a large bump, but docs all predicted Monty would weigh around 8lbs.
She said: "All the scans were normal, so I was all set to go to have a home birth.
"Initially, I just wanted to have a water-birth and that was going to be my own form of pain relief.
"Monty was 10 days late, so it got to the point where the doctor was talking about a planned C-section or inducing me."
Sarah ended up needing to go to the hospital for an emergency C-section.
She said: "My water broke in the morning, and I was in full labour that evening, but I hadn't dilated at all.
"The pain got so bad that I asked for gas and air, and then eventually we had to go into hospital.
"I didn't want to be induced, and we had spoken about a planned C-section because he was so late, we even did all the paperwork.
"That ended up being useful because we had to go in for the emergency C-section, we'd filled in all the forms."
