If you think you have seen a heavy child before, then you will be totally shocked to see this baby. A 35-year-old Chinese woman has given birth to a child weighing 6.7 Kilograms, which is twice the average weight of a normal newborn.
The baby boy, who is being touted as one of the heaviest newborns that China has ever seen, was reportedly born through a Cesarean Section at Daxing Hospital in Xian, China.
The father, only identified as MrWang, nicknamed his son ‘Kang Kang’, which means healthy and strong in Chinese.
The child was reportedly born in great health. The doctors say he measures 58 cm tall, almost twice the length of an average newborn.
According to the medics, Kang Kang’s mother was suffering from gestational diabetes, which led to eating disorder.
MrWang and his wife had allegedly been informed that their baby could be bigger than usual. They were surprised to learn that he weighed 6.7 Kilograms.
The parents have been advised to monitor the child’s diet and watch his weight closely to avoid diseases such as high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol.
“Most Chinese families prefer to have bigger babies, so they over-feed expectant mothers. The problem with this tradition is that excess nutrients can lead to illnesses in the baby .It also increases chances of difficulties during labour,” says Dr Liu.
In China, a baby is ‘overweight’ if he or she weighs over 4 Kilograms. According to the country's Ministry of Health, a normal newborn is expected to weigh somewhere around 3.3 Kg on average.
