15-Pound Baby Born

Baby Born Weighing 15 Pounds 7 Ounces

How much did your baby weigh at birth? We're guessing not as much as newborn George King!

As Yahoo! Shine reports, the British newborn surprised parents and doctors alike with his size, a whopping 15 pounds and 7 ounces. After you try to picture what a 15-pound baby looks like, consider that he was delivered vaginally! Because George's size was unexpected, the birth had frightening complications, with George getting stuck at the shoulders and deprived of oxygen for five minutes. Thankfully, he and mom are now doing well.

Wow! Mine was only 11'1 and I had him vaginally also. I am glad I didn't have any complications. That would have been scary. I am happy the mother and baby are doing well now.

My First Baby was 9 lbs and 39 weeks, baby #2 was 10 lbs at 36.6 weeks and baby #3 was 11 lbs at 38 weeks. I am fully expecting my next baby to be 12 lbs since they each grew a pound bigger then the last. Im.scared if i have any more then 1 more baby lol

Wow! Its funny; my almost two year old weights just a few pounds heavier than this baby. But then again, she was only 6 lbs at birth.

My last baby weighed in at 9 lbs 6 ounces and that was all natural. So kudos to this mother because that is a big baby! I am glad mother and baby are doing well. My second was a bit tricky as she was oxygen deprived and we had no idea she would make it or not and she weighed 7 lbs 6 ounces. So I said that to say that each bay is a miracle as well as a blessing...

My daughter had a planned unassisted birth (I was the only one with her) and her third "little" guy weighed in at 13 lbs 2 oz. Her doctor was upset because he would have gotten recognition if he had delivered a baby that large but she was determined to do it naturally and at home without medical intervention (unless necessary). I'm still amazed that she managed to maintain control and work her way through a home delivery w/o meds and hop in the shower about an hour afterward. What an experience for us both!!!! But, even so, more than 2 lbs more would have been unbelievably difficult without assistance. I'm thankful the mom and baby are doing well!!!
