15 pound baby china

15 pound baby china

15 pound baby china 15-pound newborn sets record A baby boy born in China has already made a big impression. Chun Chun weighed 15.5 pounds when he came into the world , earning him the title of the heaviest baby born in the country . His mom says her pregnancy with him felt different, but she wasn't expecting him to be so big



A mother in central China has given birth to a 15.52 pound (7.04 kilogram) baby, possibly the largest newborn on record since the country's founding in 1949.
The state-run Tianjin Post said Tuesday that the 29-year-old mother in Henan province gave birth to the boy Saturday by cesarean section. It said delivery took just 20 minutes and both mother and the baby, named Chun Chun, are doing fine.
The paper said Chun Chun's parents are average size and there was nothing unusual about his mother's pregnancy or diet.
The paper said it wasn't immediately clear whether Chun Chun made China's record books.
Guinness World Records says the heaviest newborn ever recorded was born to an Ohio woman in 1879 and weighed 23.7 pounds (10.77 kilograms).
According to the Daily Mail, Wang Yujuan, 29, gave birth to Chun Chun on saturday. She delivered her son by caesarean section in Xinxiang City, which is located in China’s Henan Province. This is the second child for Wang and her husband, whose 8 year-old daughter weight just over 8.8 pounds.


“I clearly felt that my body was more clumbsy than when I had been pregnant with my daughter,” said Wang. “My belly was bigger than it was then. I guessed the baby would be between 10 and 11 pounds. I never expected to hear that he weighs 15 pounds.”

Between 2008 and 2010, three babies were born weighing exactly 15 pounds. They held the record for the country’s largest newborns, but Chun Chun now holds that record by .5 of a pound.

“This baby is twice as heavy as a normal one,” said Shang Lili, who is the head of the Obsetries department at the local hospital where Chun Chun was born.

The family is also thrilled that Chun Chun was born just after the lunar new year, the Year of the Dragon. “He’s a dragon baby,” Han Jingang, the baby’s father, told Xinxiang Television. “I feel very happy.”

Both the mother and the baby are doing fine.
It seems like only yesterday when that mammoth 14-pound baby was born. Well, now a 15.5-pound baby has been born in China.

The newborn, named Chun Chun, was born in the city of Xinxiang which is in China’s Henan Province. The baby has broken the record for the heaviest baby ever to be born in China.

Chun Chun was delivered via caesarean section (thank goodness!) which hospital officials said lasted about 20 minutes on Saturday.

Mother and toddler 15.5-pound baby are resting and doing just fine, according to doctors.

Mother Wang Yujuan, 29, apparently informed the local media that this second pregnancy felt much different than her first pregnancy with Chun Chun’s big sister, who weighed a mere 8.8 pounds at birth.

“I clearly felt that my body was more clumsy than when I had been pregnant with my daughter. My belly was bigger than it was then,” Wang said.

She continued, “I guessed the baby would be between 10 and 11 pounds. I never expected to hear that he weighs 15.5 pounds.”
The boy’s father, Han Jingang, said his wife didn’t do anything differently while she was pregnant with their son. He was ecstatic when she gave birth to “such a big, fat son.”

“Today is the first day of spring in the Chinese calendar and he’s a ‘dragon baby,’” Han told reporters. “I feel very happy.”

The three previous record holders each weighed in at 15.4 pounds.
