14 Pound Baby Born in Haifa

A 13-pound-7-ounce (6.245 kilograms) baby born at the Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa this week surprised his mother and doctors, who were not able to find proper baby pajamas in his size after he was delivered by C-section in the 38th week of pregnancy.

The doctors calculated that the baby born is the approximate size and weight of a six-month old infant. Guinness recently reported that a baby weighing 13.49 pounds (6.12 kilograms) was born in Germany this July and in August, a baby weighing 13.66 pounds (6.2 kilograms) was born in Spain.

“This is the second largest baby that was born in the 35 years that I’ve worked at Rambam,” said Prof. Shraga Blazer, the director of the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. “Twenty years ago, I delivered a baby that weighed 6.3 kilograms (about 13.9 pounds). But even when I worked in the U.S., I did not see such a thing.”

Mother and baby are being monitored at the hospital.
