A 7.04-pound baby was born on Saturday (4) in the city of Xinxiang, Henan province, China. The boy, named Chun Chun, is twice the weight of a normal child, and broke the record of Chinese baby more fat per 40 grams.
“My wife was not different from other pregnant women. She drank and ate normally as it should be. But she gave birth to a boy so big, fat. Today is the first day of spring in the Chinese calendar and it is a ‘baby dragon’. I’m very happy, “said the father Han Jingang local television.
Chun Chun was born soon after the start of the Lunar New Year, the Year of the Dragon. The Chinese consider this period a good time to have children. The Xinhua news agency reported that between 2008 and 2010, three babies were born exactly 7 pounds in China and were even then the record holders.
“I clearly felt my body was more awkward than when I was pregnant with my daughter. My belly was bigger than it was then. I thought my baby would be between 4.5 and 5 pounds. I never expected to know that it weighs 7 pounds, “said the mother, Wang Yujuan of 29 years. The first daughter was born with four pounds and is 6 years old today.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the world’s heaviest baby born with 10.8 pounds in Ohio, USA, in 1879. However, he died a few hours later.
