Texas Woman Gives Birth To 16 Lb. Baby Boy

Wow, kudos to this woman for carrying such a large baby:

Before Texas native Janet Johnson had a baby shower recently, she had been told by her doctors that her soon-to-arrive son would be big. So, she told her friends “to not get any newborn stuff,” reports CBS affiliate KYTX-TV. Little did she know how right she was. On Sunday, Janet gave birth to a 16-pound boy, named JaMichael Brown.

“When they pulled the baby out, they could tell that he was huge,” Janet told KYTX. “And then they weighed him.” JaMichael may be the biggest baby ever born in a state known for going big, and the average size of a newborn is around 7 and a half pounds. Not only did JaMichael weigh in at 16 pounds and one ounce, but he was two feet long. Janet was diagnosed with gestational diabetes during her pregnancy, which may have contributed to JaMichael’s size, reports KYTX

“It’s a beautiful baby, but for health reasons we’d rather not see a baby this large. They can have a little harder time maintaining their blood sugar,” said nurse Mary Beth Smith, who helped deliver the baby.

Hopefully the big guy and his mommy are both healthy, but 16 lbs. and 2 feet long…that had to hurt!!!

    Now let me ask yall this…if the baby is the size of a 3month old can he do things a 3month old can do? Like sit his head up and roll over and stuff?

  • Will G

    At this point she’s got a flying squirrel down there

  • Whoa

    She had a C-section. Also what kind of insurance did she have? They weight the baby while your pregnant to make sure it’s not too big or small. The question could be solved by the two diff. last names.
