According to the report, a baby was born 15 pounds, 7 ounces in UK last month. George King is being considered as a giant baby, with his parents Jade Packer and Ryan King. George was transferred to St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol right after he was born and was given a 10% chance of survival after he went without oxygen for five minutes. Nevertheless, doctors told George‘s parents that he is now in a good health condition.
“When his head came out that’s when they realized how big he was. And then his shoulders got stuck, and that’s when everything kicked off, really. There were about 20 doctors in the room. That’s when it got really scary.” Jade Packer said. She was in labor for around 16 hours before she gave birth.
“He (George) didn’t fit into any of his newborn clothes. He’s gone straight into 3-6 month clothes.” Ms. Packer added, noting that she and Ryan are just happy to have brought home their baby; despite they were really shocked after learning George‘s size.
George King was born on February 11 at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, and now weighs 16 pounds, 9 ounces. He is 2 feet and 2 inches long, and is wearing baby clothes fit for a six-month-old. There was no clear explanation, how he become a 15 pounds, 7 ounces born baby.
“It was a massive shock for everyone, no one had any idea, he would be this big. During the pregnancy I was just getting bigger and bigger. It makes it even more special to have him home now after all he has been through.” The 21-year old mother said, with George considered as the second-heaviest baby born in UK.
