15 Pound Baby Born, George King is a big baby. How big? George was born 15 pounds, 7 ounces to a couple in England last month.
According to the BBC, Jade and Ryan welcomed George about 6 weeks ago at St. Michael’s Hospital in Bristol. Both parents, as well as doctors, were shocked at George’s size.
As you might expect, the birth wasn’t an easy one and after George was born he struggled to survive. He went five minutes without oxygen and was given a 10% chance of survival.
Jade said: “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.”
Thankfully, doctors were able to help George along and a month later Jade and Ryan were able to bring their big baby home.
Jade said: “He didn’t fit into any of his newborn clothes. He’s gone straight into 3-6 month clothes.”
