My baby was born the size of a toddler, he was triple the size of other newborns & needed clothes for nine-month-olds


A MUM has gone viral after sharing photos of her enormous newborn who weighed almost three times the amount of other babies his age.

It started when a TikToker put out the call for people to share the story of their biggest babies, and TikTok user @shans1588 was only to happy to answer that call.

“Oh you want to play the biggest baby?” she replied. “I got you.” 

Shans stood in front of the image of her son shortly after birth and explained. 

“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.”

Her baby was also almost 24 inches long, that’s two Subway footlong sandwiches for perspective. 

In the UK, the average weight of a newborn is 7lb 8oz and the average length is around 50 centimetres. 

“That’s right,” she says. “I gave birth to a toddler, who then spent 11 days in the NICU.”

“Where 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.”

“He’s already got a credit score,” quipped one person. 

“That baby drove himself home from the hospital!” added another. 

“He started college classes the next day.”

In a follow-up video, Shan assured everyone that her not-so-little bub is five now, and a healthy and happy boy. 

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