Modern records show that the world’s biggest baby ever award should go to a baby born in Canada, way back in 1879. On January 19th, 1879. Anna Bates of Canada, who was more than 7 feet 5 inches tall herself, gave birth to a boy that weighed 23 pounds and twelve ounces and measured 30-inches long. Unfortunately, the baby died just eleven hours later.
The world’s biggest surviving baby was born to Sig. Carmelita Fedele in Aversa, Italy, in September 1955. The boy weighed 22 pounds and eight ounces. The second largest was born in the Noida District Hospital of New Delhi, India on February 10, 201. The 19.2-pound, 24 inch-long boy named Shaheen was just 100 grams shy of being India’s largest born newborn on record in the city of Surat, India.
The third largest baby ever born came into the world on September 21, 2009, in Jakarta, Indonesia. The 19-pound, two ounces, 24-inch baby boy is possibly the largest born in Indonesia. The worlds fourth largest baby ever was born on September 17, 2007 in the Altai region of Siberia. The 17.1-pound baby girl was born to mother Tatyana, whose eleven other children were all born weighing more than eleven pounds each. Finally Brazil's largets baby claim to fame was born on January 19, 2005, in El Salvador, Brazil. The 17-pound baby boy, named Ademilton, was possibly the largest ever born in Brazil.
Interestingly the average size for most babies is 6 percent of the mothers weight during pregnancy. Although, babies of larger birth-weights are not uncommon, it would seem that the world’s biggest human baby ever on record is still held by Mrs. Bates.
