19-lb Indonesian baby terrorizes nursery

19 pound baby

Well, not really. (But isn’t the other baby’s face priceless?)

The baby, still awaiting a name, is pictured above next to a more average sized baby. The child’s unusual size is thought to be a result of common condition gestational diabetes. Luckily for mom Ani, 41, he was born via c-section, unlike his three home-born siblings. Even delivered surgically, the 19 lb baby posed a bit of a challenge for doctors to deliver safely:

“This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him out of his mum’s womb. His legs were so big,” said the gynecologist, Binsar Sitanggang.

Sitanggang said the boy eats like Pac-man, though:

“He’s got strong appetite, every minute, it’s almost non-stop feeding. This baby boy is extraordinary; the way he’s crying is not like a usual baby. It’s really loud,” he added.

The 19 pound baby broke the record for Indonesia’s heaviest baby, previously held by a wimpy 15.2 lb baby born in 2007.
