New mum gives birth to gigantic 12lb 6oz baby.

New mum breaks hospital record after giving birth to gigantic 12lb 6oz baby. :roll: :D
A Brazilian mother spent eight days in hospital after giving birth to a baby who weighed nearly six kilos - about half the weight of a gold bar.
Mother of three Maira Trevisan admitted that while doctors told her she'd have a big baby, she wasn't quite prepared for just how heavy Gabrielly would be.

Doctors at Cascavel University Hospital in Parana, Brazil, knew that the child would be bigger than average, but mum Maria admits she didn't expect the baby to be so heavy.
Tipping the scales at a whopping 5.72 kilos or 12.61 pounds, baby Gabrielly broke the hospital's 27-year-old record, which was when the maternity unit registered an infant weighing 5kgs.

12lbs 6oz isn't all that big in the UK. My mum had 2 babies bigger than that. Seven of her eight were over 10lbs.... and then there was me.... the whippet who came in at just over 7lbs - just as well really as I arrived backside first :shock:
Several of my mum's grandchildren and great-grandchildren have topped 11lbs - the latest arrival in March weighed in at 11lbs 2oz. first baby to a mother who normally only weighed eight stone herself!

Thinking exactly the same thing as Bee!
They must be producing awful small babies in Brazil if this is a record breaker :roll:
Sure I can remember a girl in my street giving birth to a twelve pounder :shock: (think it was your sister in law, Bee)
My own 9lb baby was a tiddler in comparison!

Definitely not uncommon for Bootle mums to deliver WHOPPERS - OUCH :)

Update on the big Brazilian baby - doctors say the child will be walking in 6 months.... probably 3 months ahead of the mother! :lol: :lol:

Joe, I think Shelagh and I were both just noting that birth weights must be lower in Brazil than UK.
Yep Joe, you're only a man :lol: - birth weight doesn't really make a lot of difference for a man which reminds me...
Naughty Bernie! :lol:
Shelagh, yes that was Ann - who was all of 5ft tall :( .
