Biggest Baby of 2013

Mom Gives Birth to the Biggest Baby of 2013

The year of record-breaking births is ending with another special arrival. Florida mom Nicia McNelley gave birth to her third child, Isaiah, who weighed in at 14 pounds, 7.6 ounces. Born a week early, Isaiah is now the biggest baby of 2013, beating out the previous record-holder by exactly 7.6 ounces. He more than doubles the average birth weight for American babies, which is roughly seven pounds.

For more details on Isaiah's birth, read the full story on The Stir.

That's a big baby. I would not want to have to carry a baby around that is that big. Both my kids weighed 19 lbs. at a year old.

My mum had a pregnancy of triplets which as just 3 onces less than this total weight in my 3 new siblings April,May, and June. ( mum wasn't very inventive with her names, after so many times!!) Rather small at birth, the thre are now doing very well at age 7. in all respects average sized kids. but to bake ONE so huge? AGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!! makes me HURT just reading it!
