Big Baby Born in Pennsylvania

Record-Breaking Girl Born in Pennsylvania

New babies are a big bundle of joy to any family, but Addyson Gayle Cessna topped the charts, weighing in at 13 pounds, 12 ounces and measuring 25 inches long. Doctors at Pennsylvania's Armstrong County Memorial Hospital, where she was delivered by C-section, had been charting the baby's size before she was born and knew she would be above average. But the baby was still bigger than they expected.

"I think as mothers, we all have that initial, oh my that must have hurt, and they're right. That's big," Dr. Yannie Narcisse, one of the delivering doctors, told KDSK.

To find out how your baby compares to Addyson, read the whole story at The Huffington Post.

This doesn't beat the 15 yes, ladies, 15!! year old girl in Papua New Guinea who gave birth to a 15.2 pound boy. Betting she didn't have the First World facilities and drugs like this lady did! Oh, and yep, it was natural... (squeezing legs tightly whilst writing lol)
