July 12, 2011 by USA Post
16 Pound Baby, Perhaps the state’s largest, a 16-pound baby was born in Longview, Texas, recently, twice the weight of an average newborn. Johnson born to proud parents Janet and Michael Brown at Good Shepherd Medical Center on Friday, JaMichael is expected between 12 and 13 pounds but not more than that.
Although the uterus of a woman could handle about 16 pounds, many physicians hoping not to see a big baby because of possible health complications.
“He was much bigger than expected,” said Dr. John Kirk, an obstetrician Johnson, ABC. “Both his mother and father are great people, and was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, which contributed to the size of the baby.”
Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy, common in 25 and overweight. Johnson, 39, developed diabetes during pregnancy; it is likely that disappears after birth. JaMichael is the fourth son of Johnson and the couple first.
“That’s it, not now. I’m happy,” said Johnson Medical News Today. “We’ll be here for a few days, then I have really wanted to bring home JaMichael and only love him.”
The father, a height of 6 feet 7 inches, she knew her baby would be bigger than most newborns. Delivered by Caesarean section, JaMichael was the size of a normal three to six months old baby – two feet long with a 17-inch chest and the head of 15 inches, according to MNT.
“At last you can have a star football player of the family, or maybe a basketball player,” said Brown also shares. “I’m proud of him.”
The bridal couple may have to replace revealed some clothing ready, diapers and other products they bought.
JaMichael is currently in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where he is being fed through a feeding tube. Doctors want to regulate their blood sugar due to larger babies tend to have a risk of hypoglycemia.
Dr. Kirk thinks the baby and the mother is likely to leave the hospital within days, according to ABC.
Nicknamed “Moose,” JaMichael is not the biggest baby is born, even though you may have broken previous records in the state.
Currently, the Guinness World Records recorded that a woman named Anna Bates of Canada, gave birth to a baby of 23 pounds in 1897. The baby died, but 11 hours later. JaMichael is expected to be good with just a few minor problems reported so far.
