Mom gives birth to 17-pound babyFri, Sep 28, 2007 (Reuters Life!) - A Siberian woman who gave birth to her 12th child - doing more than her fair share to stem Russia's population decline - was stunned to find that little Nadia weighed in at a massive 17.1 lbs (7.75 kg).
Nadia was delivered by cesarean section in the local maternity hospital in the Altai region on September 17, joining eight sisters and three brothers, a local reporter said.
"We were all simply in shock," said Nadia's mother, Tatyana Barabanova, 43. "What did the father say? He couldn't say a thing - he just stood there blinking."
"I ate everything, we don't have the money for special foods so I just ate potatoes, noodles and tomatoes," she told the reporter, adding that all her previous babies had weighed more than 11 lbs (5 kg).
The Guinness Book of World Records lists a 22.4 lb (10.2 kg) baby boy born in Italy in 1955, and a 23.8 lb (10.8 kg) baby boy who was born in the United States in 1879 but died 11 hours later.
The average weight for most healthy newborn babies is around 7.1 lb (3.2 kg), according to World Health Organization figures.
