16.7 is a whopper Some of you won't remember but the older members will...Dan Blocker from the TV show Bonanza (Hoss) was something like 14.7 when born. And he was a big man in life. When I was born I was 11.14, my neice was 10.5 and if I remember right my nephew was 9.5.

pfft, that's nothing. You should see what happens in the bathroom the morning after a heavy night of drinking. I'll bet its way over 16.7 lbs...

Woah, that's nasty!

When my daughter was born, she was 23" and weighed right at 11lbs.
My neighbor has a nephew that is 16 yrs old now but when he was born he weighed 16.5 lbs.
The thing with the giant baby is, the baby isn't the largest born ever, it was the largest born in the last 12 years.
I am still standing behind my thoughts on why kids are so big now-a-days...I think that it is because of all of the growth hormones and steroids that is pumped into the animals and crops that we eat.

Our teacher told us that in some town girls were starting to develop at 8-9 years already and they found out that it was the milk from the cows, which were fed hormones and steroids. Dunno it it's true, but if it is....freaky

copied from a couple of web pages

Carmelina Fedele of Italy set a world record back in 1955, when she gave birth to a 22-pound 8-ounce boy

According to the Guinness Book of Records the heaviest baby ever born weighed 29 lbs 4 oz. (29.25 lbs). (Historical Note: The birth occurred in Effingham IL in 1939 and due to respiratory problems the baby died two hours later. The heaviest babies to survive weighed 22.5 lbs and were born in 1955 and 1982.)

Coldknock, I read that article a few years ago and the really sad part is that I have some friends whose daughters are experiencing that very thing. One woman I know was telling me just today about how her daughter is already well developed AND has been getting her period for almost a YEAR! She is [color=blue]nine[/color]. That poor girl has a lot to contend with not only from within herself, but from all the kids at school who are still too young and immature to even begin to understand her problems. Not only that, but those girls that develop early also have an increased chance of getting breast cancer later in life.

Now, about the big baby thing, our oldest boy was almost nine pounds at birth and the twins were close to 8 pounds EACH! Imagine giving birth to an eight pound baby twice in less than 30 minutes. NOT FUN! But, the upside is, things do get back to normal, and everything shrinks back to a regular size. Not to worry, gents.
I don't think I'd want to be in the biggest baby contest anyway, a child that's that large is unnatural and probably unhealthy. I can't believe that any doctor would allow a baby to get that large without some kind of intervention. There must have been tests done and I'd be interested to know what those results were. And I'll bet my bottom dollar that if you followed up on these babies as adults, they have a whole host of health concerns, Diabetes being top of the list.

Chickie.

A friend of mine´s wife gave birth to a large boy,
they managed to dislocate his shoulder and break his collar bone.
His left arm is now (3 years old) out at an angle from body and slightly twisted.
The mother is not that large and it should have been obvious a natural birth would be difficult.
