Western Sydney Woman Gave Birth To 12.6 Lbs Baby Boy: "Hopefully He Will Be A Bit Of A Football Player"

Date November 8, 2018

Giving birth to a baby with enormous weight isn't something prevalent. According to scholars, the average baby weighs around 7.5 pounds (3,400 kg). However, it is normal to deliver a baby with 5.5 (2,495) and 10 pounds (4,535 kg) as well.

Mothers are usually worried if their kid weight's too low or too high, though there's nothing to worry about. Usually, infant's weight depends on many factors such as genetics, mother's diet during pregnancy, maternal age, prenatal health, etc.

Big baby boy

A western Sydney mother, Nikki Bell, 28, has gotten a joy of 5.755 kg (12.6 lbs). A young couple, Nikki and Parker think that their newborn son, Parker, is enormous but not in a negative way.
