Most Heaviest Babies Ever Born -Biggest Newborn Babies

Normally, newborns are expected to weigh an average of 7.5 pounds or 10. But, however, we have some pretty remarkable births that are far beyond what we call ‘Normal’. According to research, one factor which can be associated with this extraordinary phenomenon is the age of the pregnant mother before delivery.

The age of the pregnant mother can affect her baby’s growth inside her womb drastically. This is because scientifically proven, women who have past the age of 35 are more likely to face increased chances of birth complications associated with what is termed ‘advanced maternal age’. Other factors such as a woman’s weight, case of diabetes in the mother or high blood pressure can also affect the size and health of her newborn baby.

So, with that said, let’s take you through a list of 17 of the heaviest babies ever to be delivered.
