Diana Machacon, a new mum has revealed how she was truly surprised after giving birth to a “record-breaking baby” weighing a whopping 14.1 pounds.
According to The Sun UK, exhausted Diana Machacon had to buy new baby clothes for Isaac David Guerra – because nothing they had bought fitted him.
The massive tot, who also measures a staggering 55 centimetres in length, is reported to require around seven feeds of breast milk per day and uses nappies meant for five-month-old infants.
The average weight for a newborn baby is 7.7 pounds.
Diana said: “I really did not expect him to be this big. I mean, he looked big on the ultrasound scan, but I never imagined quite so large.
“I am over the moon and Isaac is so beautiful, but most of all I am happy because he is healthy.”
The baby boy was born at 10am on December 2 at the Cienaga Polyclinic in the northern department of Magdalena, Columbia.
Gynaecologist Ana Maria Rivera Casas told local media that Isaac was born by caesarean section.
She added that that there were no complications during the procedure, but doctors took him to the Intensive Care Nursery for monitoring.
Rivera Casas said that a baby’s average weight is between 2.6 and 4 kilos, while Isaac was 6.38 kilos.
The gynaecologist also revealed the normal length for a newborn is between 50 and 52cm.
She said: “At first the baby recorded a little breathing difficulty and we had to monitor his blood sugar levels as episodes of hypoglycaemia are not uncommon in larger infants.
“But everything is now normal and the baby is feeding well.
The boy’s dad Jonathan Guerra also expressed his joy and called his son “a blessing from God”.
